100,000 Genome Project

Dr Melissa Stepney writes:

"I am a researcher from Oxford University looking for people who have been invited to take part in the 100,000 Genomes Project.

The 100,000 Genomes project funded by the Department of Health will sequence 100,000 genomes from around 70,000 people. Participants are NHS patients with a rare disease, plus their families, and patients with cancer.

We are looking to interview people who have been invited to take part in the Genome 100,000 Project (including if you have declined to take part in the project and decided it wasn’t for you). We would like to interview you about your experiences, feelings and thoughts about genomic research. We would then (with your permission) like to put extracts from your interview on our website (in video, audio or written only format). If you are interested and would like further information or have any questions at all, please get in touch with me or Sara Ryan

Thank you for your time."
