The Health 2030 Genome Center is a multi-institutional¬†hub established to promote genomic medicine in¬†Switzerland and provide sequencing and analysis services¬†to the research and clinical community.¬†The Center was¬†conceived as a hub for genetics and genomics research to¬†foster collaboration, increase communication, and¬†promote the sharing of ideas, allowing for the long-term¬†development of major initiatives.
The creation of the Health 2030 Genome Center was supported by a private Geneva-based foundation, the Personalized Health and Related Technologies of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Domain and the Health 2030 initiative in personalized health. The Health 2030 is located at the Biotech Campus in Geneva, which is a few hundred meters from the United Nations Building.
