About the Study

GenOMICC (Genetics of Mortality In Critical Care) is a research study, led by the University of Edinburgh, run by doctors and scientists who are working together to find new treatments for life-threatening diseases.

We study the DNA of patients who need critical care because of COVID-19, sepsis, flu, and many other conditions. We compare their DNA to the rest of the population, to see what genetic factors are different.

The genetic discoveries we have made are already helping t o find new treatments for COVID-19. See here for more information.
