    and 50 of them affect children As a group rare diseases affect more people than cancer The Problems Unfortunately as rare diseases are a collection of diseases not a single disorder they receive little attention research funding and support Not enough is known about what causes these diseases how they affect people with them and how we can treat their symptoms Until we know more about them patients with these diseases will continue to face delayed and potentially incorrect diagnoses and the health social and financial burdens that accompany this What is the Human Variome Project doing to help The Human Variome Project Consortium is working to ensure that everyone around the world has ready access to information on the consequences of every genetic change that has previously been reported We strongly believe in the free and open sharing of information on genetic variation and its consequences and are dedicated to developing and maintaining the standards systems and infrastructure that will embed information sharing into routine clinical practice We envision a world where the availability of and access to genetic variation information is not an impediment to diagnosis and treatment where the burden of genetic disease on the human population is significantly decreased where never again will a doctor have to look at a genetic sequence and ask What does this change mean for my patient How can I help For more information on Rare Diseases and Rare Disease Day visit www rarediseaseday org To find out how you can get involved in your own country visit www rarediseaseday org country finder Or join the Human Variome Project Consortium and help ensure that access to information on genetic variations is not an impediment to diagnosis and treatment Beijing Meeting Wraps Up Statement by the Scientific Director on the passin Comments

    Cotton This is the first scientific project approved by UNESCO in Australia said Professor Cotton and the first genetics project in the world ENDS About the Project The Human Variome Project is an international consortium of clinicians geneticists and researchers from over 30 countries led by Professor Richard Cotton a world renowned expert in the area of genetic variation detection and data collection It was formally initiated in 2006 at a World Health Organisation sponsored meeting in Melbourne The ultimate goal of the Project is to integrate the systematic collection and sharing of genetic variant information into routine clinical practice The Human Variome Project s vision is of a world where sharing of information on genetic variations effecting human disease leads to speedier better and cheaper diagnosis and treatment of genetic disorders The objective is to establish the standards systems and infrastructure that will enable scientists doctors and bioinformaticians to collect and share genetic variation data This project will directly reduce the cost of diagnosis of genetic diseases and contribute to cheaper and faster treatment Contact Mr David Abraham Chairman 61 0 418 335 642 Professor Richard Cotton Scientific Director 61 0 3 8344 1893 UNESCO endorses Human Variome Project Human Variome Project Beijing Meeting Opens in Chi Comments No comments made yet Be the first to submit a comment Leave your comment Don t forget to log in If you re a member of the Human Variome Project Consortium you might want to log in before posting a comment Not a member Why not sign up Guest Wednesday 10 February 2016 Captcha Image I have read and agree to the Terms Conditions Categories News Press Releases Statements Speeches Capacity Building Collaborating Projects HVP Country Nodes China Czech Republic Republic of Korea South East Asia Regional USA United Kingdom Venezuela

  • China Commits to Ending Genetic Disease - Blog - Human Variome Project
    some 1 4 billion people a quarter of the world s population there is a huge amount of genetic diversity within China The new institute based in Beijing will leverage that diversity to build new and supplement existing databases that catalogue genetic variation within genes implicated in hundreds of genetic diseases The Human Variome Project sees the creation and curation of gene and disease specific genetic variation databases as vital says Cotton Our Project Roadmap is centred on the creation of these databases and we re delighted that this money will enable our colleagues in China to substantially contribute in such an important way The Chinese contribution represents the largest investment towards the project to date It s difficult to give an accurate estimate of the total funding committed to the vision of the Project says Cotton This is not your average research project It s literally hundreds if not thousands of projects in upwards of 30 countries spread around the world that are all contributing to the one vision However this contribution represents around a 25 investment in the project Previous to this the Human Variome Project has had some significant successes the European Commission awarded European Project Members 12 million in 2007 and the Project recently announced a A 2 5 million grant from the Victorian State Government to ensure the Project s coordination and facilitation functions remained in Australia But despite this significant boost to the Project s activities Professor Cotton warns that there is still a lot of work to be done The Human Variome Project sees a world where the availability of and access to genetic variation information is not an impediment to diagnosis and treatment The commitment from China will go a long way to making that vision a reality but we still have a long way to go We d definitely like to see more countries become involved and there are a number of ways that can happen Our network of HVP Country Nodes secure repositories of all the genetic variants being discovered in the diagnostic laboratories of individual countries is one way that that can be achieved Sir Gustav Nossal a long term supporter of the Project agrees We are all interested in what makes up a person but we re even more interested in what makes people different That s one of the reasons we re all so fascinated by identical twins we marvel at the likeness Well the reasons for differences between people are mutations in the genes That s why we need to study mutations We need the Human Variome Project This is not just an academic exercise When we know what gene has gone wrong in a disease we can soon find and study the relevant protein and possibly devise a prophylactic approach or even a cure END Media Contact Timothy D Smith This email address is being protected from spambots You need JavaScript enabled to view it This email address is being protected from spambots You need

    centred on the creation of these databases and we re delighted that this money will enable our colleagues in China to substantially contribute in such an important way The Chinese contribution represents the largest investment towards the project to date It s difficult to give an accurate estimate of the total funding committed to the vision of the Project says Cotton This is not your average research project It s literally hundreds if not thousands of projects in upwards of 30 countries spread around the world that are all contributing to the one vision However this contribution represents around a 25 investment in the project Previous to this the Human Variome Project has had some significant successes the European Commission awarded European Project Members 12 million in 2007 and the Project recently announced a A 2 5 million grant from the Victorian State Government to ensure the Project s coordination and facilitation functions remained in Australia But despite this significant boost to the Project s activities Professor Cotton warns that there is still a lot of work to be done The Human Variome Project sees a world where the availability of and access to genetic variation information is not an impediment to diagnosis and treatment The commitment from China will go a long way to making that vision a reality but we still have a long way to go We d definitely like to see more countries become involved and there are a number of ways that can happen Our network of HVP Country Nodes secure repositories of all the genetic variants being discovered in the diagnostic laboratories of individual countries is one way that that can be achieved Egypt and Belgium Create HVP Country Nodes China Commits to Ending Genetic Disease Comments No comments made yet Be the first
