How We Work

Functional Groups

G2MC Working Groups

G2MC maintains three working groups as well as an ad hoc conference planning working group.

Resource Center Working Group

  • Design the Resource Center infrastructure
  • Determine how Genomic Medicine tools/resources are identified,
    screened, and shared in the G2MC Resource Center
  • Populate the Resource Center
  • Set and evaluate progress on objectives

Membership Working Group

  • Define who can be a member, how to become a member, what is required to maintain membership, and what benefits are included in membership
  • Define baseline metrics and membership objectives
  • Grow the membership to include global representation from all countries, especially low- and middle-income countries (LMICs)
  • Set and evaluate progress on objectives

Implementation Projects Working Group

  • Develop an approach and set the standard for what a G2MC Flagship Project is through the development of common templates, guidelines, an application and review process for relevance to G2MC, and a monitoring plan to ensure outcomes and distribution of results to the genomic medicine community.
  • Oversee the implementation projects (Flagship Projects) – solicit applications, select projects, monitor projects
  • Set and evaluate progress on objectives

Conference Planning Working Group

  • Plan and produce all-member convenings, including in-person and virtual conferences
  • Set and evaluate progress on objectives

G2MC Flagship Projects

G2MC currently has two flagship projects that are overseen by the Implementation Projects Working Group.

Flagship Project - Family Health History

  • Assist champion healthcare providers in determining local and country-wide family health history needs and capabilities.
  • Identify various methods for obtaining family health history data which best fit local needs and capabilities.
  • Adopt data standards for wide-scale data input and sharing.
  • Investigate available risk assessment algorithms to determine best clinical application.
  • Combine family health history with clinical, genomic, and environmental data to create new knowledge for patient care.

Flagship Project - Rare Genetic Disorders

  • Based on results from the funded six-site pilot project, develop and implement the project to include more LMIC sites from around the world.
  • Evaluate clinical outcomes, provider and patient satisfaction, ethical, social and legal implications, and cost-effectiveness of the intervention.
  • Train local clinicians in genomic medicine in the genetic evaluation, result interpretation, and pre and post-test counseling.

GGMC Core Committees

G2MC’s parent organization, the Global Genomic Medicine Collaborative (GGMC), has three core committees that function across all of GGMC’s programs.

Workforce & Training Core Committee

Training the next generation of genomic medicine professionals through the development of a mentorship program, educational webinars, and other programs and activities generating leadership skills in the field of genomic medicine.

Policy Core Committee

Analyzing, advocating for, and sharing global policies that support the implementation of genomic medicine.

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) Core Committee

Fostering a supportive and inclusive environment for genomic medicine professionals from diverse backgrounds and demographics to excel, become leaders within the GGMC organization and its consortia, and be represented across all projects and working groups.

Previous Working Groups

G2MC was originally made up of three Working Groups: Education, Evidence, and Policy. Each group made significant contributions to G2MC, leading to the success and growth of the organization. In 2022, as part of the G2MC Strategic Planning process and as a result of the organization’s continued growth, these groups were dissolved in order to leverage their contributions at a higher level across the parent organization, the Global Genomic Medicine Collaborative
