25 years making science work for health – PHG Foundation

We are celebrating 25 years as pioneers working where good science meets effective public health policy.
Our extensive portfolio showcases our vision for better, more personalised healthcare based on genomics and other emerging health technologies – for the benefit of all. 
As well as pioneering the use of genomics for public and population health, world-firsts from the PHG Foundation include our original genetics futures scenario project for the Nuffield Trust (2000), a comprehensive assessment of the clinical impact of next-generation genome sequencing technologies (2011); and a unique analysis of steps needed to build on UK excellence in infectious disease genomics for public health (2015).
Words such as ‘rigorous’, ‘honest’ and ‘comprehensive’ may not sound very exciting, but they are the foundation of our reputation for trustworthiness and the reliability of our strategic analyses and actionable policy insights. This solid reputation has forged successful collaborations with multiple national and international organisations such as the NHS, Genomics England, and the Foundation for Innovative Diagnostics. Now, as a linked charity of the University of Cambridge associated with the School of Clinical Medicine, we are proud to be the world’s only policy think tank focused solely on science for health.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank our stakeholders across health policy and practice and academic and commercial research for supporting us for the last 25 years in our efforts to accelerate your work, from developing great science to making healthcare better.
Our mission continues: to help make the best use of new genomics and ‘omics linked  technologies. Our reliable, real-world intelligence and appraisals explain for decision makers how complex science can best benefit individual and population health, and the factors necessary to make it happen. We are excited to be informing and shaping effective policy that aims to deliver better health for all.
