P³G's mission is to lead, catalyze, and coordinate international efforts and expertise to optimize the use of studies, biobanks, research databases and other similar health and social research infrastructure towards improving the health of individuals and populations. The EGCUT is one of the founding Charter members of the international biobank consortium P3G.
The Global Alliance for Genomics and Health (Global Alliance) was formed to help accelerate the potential of genomic medicine to advance human health. It brings together over 375 leading institutions working in healthcare, research, disease advocacy, life science, and information technology.
The partners in the Global Alliance are working together to create a common framework of harmonized approaches to enable the responsible, voluntary, and secure sharing of genomic and clinical data. The EGCUT is member of Global Alliance since 2015.
The Genetic Investigation of ANthropometric Traits (GIANT) consortium is an international collaboration that seeks to identify genetic loci that modulate human body size and shape, including height and measures of obesity. The GIANT consortium is a collaboration between investigators from many different groups, institutions, countries, and studies, and the results represent their combined efforts. Thus far, the GIANT consortium has identified common genetic variants at hundreds of loci that are associated with anthropometric traits.
