About the PHG Foundation
The PHG Foundation is an independent policy research organisation that aims to achieve better health for people and populations by the responsible and effective use of genome-based science, understanding and technologies.
Our team includes doctors, scientists, public health specialists, lawyers and many other experts, because modern genetics can throw up new ethical, legal and social issues that need to be taken into account. We look at the evidence behind the science and determine whether the medical benefits have been shown reliably. Working with partners from many different backgrounds, we review and assess health needs and services, and suggest way in which new plans and policies can be decided and acted upon to deliver improvements in health care.
