The PHG Foundation is a health policy think tank with a special focus on how genomics and other emerging health technologies can provide more effective, personalised healthcare and deliver improvements in population health. We are independent and a registered charity (charity no. 1118664)
Advances in genomics and life sciences continue to drive the need for significant change in clinical medicine and public health practice, but the rate at which research findings are translated into healthcare remains very slow. We believe society could be more organised and effective at realising the benefits of our investment in biomedical research.
A society that fully exploits advances in genomics and life sciences to make rational and responsible changes in health policy and practice, to promote health and improve the prevention and treatment of disease.
To provide knowledge, evidence, tools and opportunities to help policy makers put genomics and life sciences within the reach of every citizen in the form of effective, affordable and more personalised healthcare.
- Improving the health of people and populations drives what we do.
- We guard our independence and objectivity whilst being committed to collaboration and knowledge sharing with relevant stakeholders from all sectors, private and public.
- We are pro science and innovation, tempered with the conviction that decisions about health policy and health care provision should be underpinned by culturally-sensitive understanding of ethical, legal and social considerations.
- We believe that policy and regulation should be enabling and proportionate, striking a fair balance between the interests of the individual and the wider public good.
