NIH and GA4GH commit to ongoing collaboration

14 Feb 2024

The United States National Institutes of Health (NIH) Office of Data Science Strategy (ODSS) and the Global Alliance for Genomics and Health (GA4GH) have announced a strategic collaboration in the form of a Memorandum of Agreement. This partnership aims to bolster the development of technology standards, tools, and policy frameworks to support responsible sharing of genomic and related health data on a global scale.

“To fully realise the promise of genomic medicine, organisations worldwide must continue to commit to the equitable expansion of responsible genomic data use. Working together with GA4GH to build technical standards and policy tools can help accelerate collaborative biomedical research, a key NIH aim.”
– Dr. Eric Green, Director of the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) at NIH
