Global Alliance for Genomics and Health launches 2018 Strategic Roadmap

The Global Alliance for Genomics and Health (GA4GH) has laid out its plans for the next five years as it continues to align its activities with meeting the key needs of the genomics data community. The Strategic Roadmap encompasses the standards and frameworks that will be developed by GA4GH and will be updated with new deliverables annually. OICR is a GA4GH Host Institution.

Peter Goodhand, GA4GH Chief Executive Officer and President of the Ontario Institute for Cancer Research, said, “GA4GH is largely powered by a community that passionately values open science and collaboration. We are excited to take on this work and I believe the world of genomics will be in a much better place when the deliverables in this roadmap are available for use—patients will benefit and so will healthy individuals around the globe.”
