East Genomic Laboratory Hub embeds research and development into the core of its operations and has a vision to be a national and international leader in the field of clinical and translational genomics research.

Research and development vision

Our vision is for the East GLH to become a national leader for clinical translation and implementation of new tests and technologies, and to build an international reputation as a research active clinically accredited genomic laboratory.

We will achieve this by embedding research and development into the core of our operations. This will ensure that our staff have continued opportunities for skill development and scientific outputs as part of both personal and general workforce development plans.

Non-urgent advice: Achieving our vision

We have undertaken the following activities in the Cambridge University Hospitals Genomic Laboratory order to achieve this vision:

Supporting research studies

We are keen to support basic science and clinical research, however big or small your study! In the first instance please fill in the application form and send to cuh.geneticslaboratories@nhs.net. We will then contact you for more information if needed, before providing you a quote for the required services.

The Stratified Medicine Core Laboratory (SMCL) NGS Hub hosted by the Department of Medical Genetics at the University of Cambridge can also be approached as an option for research sample processing and NGS support. Please contact them directly via their website. (opens in a new tab)
