Estonian Genome Center Contributing to Multiple Nordic Research Projects

Scientists from the University of Tartu’s Estonian Genome Center are taking part in new precision medicine initiatives that involve collaborators from across Northern Europe.

The two projects, CoMorMent and Realment, are both funded through the European Union’s Horizon 2020 program, and are part of a concerted effort to tap into vast genomic data reserves and extensive electronic health records of Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Iceland, Norway, and Sweden. The six countries are part of the Nordic Society of Human Genetics and Precision Medicine, which was founded in 2017 to provide a framework for collaborative genetic research as well as to support the translation of findings into precision medicine to improve public health.
