Clinical Genome Resource (ClinGen)

ClinGen is a National Institutes of Health (NIH)-funded resource dedicated to building an authoritative central resource that defines the clinical relevance of genes and variants for use in precision medicine and research. ACMG coordinates the three expert panels within the Inborn Errors of Metabolism clinical domain, as well as the Somatic work group.  ACMG staff are aiding in the development of training modules on variant curation, as well as asking locus specific databases (with variant data for different genes related to the expert panels in progress) to submit their data to the ClinGen curation efforts.  The ACMG meetings coordinator plans all the ClinGen face-to-face meetings (e.g., steering committee, expert panel, and work group meetings).

ACMG is a sub-contractor under #1U01HG007437-01.

The mission of the seven Regional Genetics Networks (RGNs), the National Coordinating Center (NCC), and the National Genetics Education and Family Support Center (Family Center) is to improve access to genetic services for underserved populations.

This project is supported by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) under Cooperative Agreement #UH9MC30770  from 6/2020-5/2024 for $800,000 per award year.

Newborn Screening Translational Research Network (NBSTRN)

The mission of the Newborn Screening Translational Research Network (NBSTRN) is to facilitate newborn screening research to discover novel technologies, treatments, and interventions through the development of resources, tools, and expertise. The NBSTRN is a key component of the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) Hunter Kelly Newborn Screening Research Program.  The American College of Medical Genetics and Genomics (ACMG) operates the NBSTRN through a contract from NICHD.

This project is funded in whole with Federal funds from the NICHD, National Institutes of Health, Department of Health and Human Services, under Contract No. HHSN275201800005C.
