Technologist position on the Science and Technology Committee

The ACGS asks for expressions of interest for a technologist position on the Science and Technology Subcommittee. This is a great opportunity for a technologist to be involved in both scientific and technological discussions, and help shape ACGS activity at a time when significant modernisation of genetics services is occurring.

This position requires membership of ACGS and support from your line manager to attend a small number of meetings each year and contribute to ACGS activities.

Please send expressions of interest with a brief supporting statement  by 10th September to joowook.ahn@nhs.net & christopher.wragg@nbt.nhs.uk

Joo Wook Ahn & Christopher Wragg

Co-Chairs, ACGS Science and Technology Subcommittee

  • ClinGen/ACGS collaboration

    posted 5th February 2018  |  0 Comments

    Association for Clinical Genomic Science (ACGS) has entered into a formal affiliation with the ClinGen Inherited Cardiomyopathy Expert Panel (CMP-EP). We will be working jointly to adapt the ACMG/AMP variant classification guidelines for genes associated with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM). This work is an extension of the ClinGen CMP-EP's recommendations for MYH7 variant classification. ClinGen and ACGS have a shared goal of developing standardised genomic variant interpretation guidelines for improved patient care. The contribution of genomic and phenotypic data from both groups, as well as collaboration in the decision-making process, represents a first step in global development, acceptance, and use of a common set of specified guidelines.
