Working Groups

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

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

Flagship Projects

G2MC currently has two flagship projects that report to the Implementation Projects Working Group.

  • 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.

  • 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.

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.

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

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.

Involvement in the functional groups varies, however, members can typically expect to:

  • Participate in a monthly conference call
  • Assist with tasks such as (but not limited to) developing and reviewing resources to build the Resource Center, participating in flagship project proposals, writing and/or reviewing manuscripts, sharing expertise, discussing cases and projects, mentoring Early Career Investigators (ECIs), and more.
  • Members may be encouraged/nominated to become future leaders for those groups if they show leadership, integrity, engagement, and excitement to be part of G2MC and its mission. 
  • Members may be asked to participate in site testing of materials or in flagship projects leading to publication, funding, collaborations and more.
  • Represent G2MC at international conferences.
