GenOMICC COVID-19 Study
GenOMICC is a global community of doctors and scientists who are working together to treat serious illnesses and find out why people end up needing intensive care. Together, they use blood samples to sequence and analyse DNA for the NHS.
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.
