Study participants are unparalleled in their altruism and willingness to engage in Genuity Science’s research for the benefit of science and future generations. Without these volunteers, our research would not be possible – it’s therefore incumbent upon us to ensure we not only give back but that we also pay it forward.
The Genuity Science™ Public Impact Programs are focused in three primary areas:
The Rare Disease Research Program at Genuity Science™ provides access to whole genome sequencing to children with undiagnosed disorders and their families. The aim of the project is to identify the genetic cause of a child’s disorder.
The SFI Centre for Research Training in Genomics Data Science is a Science Foundation Ireland-funded center that focuses on providing a unique and robust training program for PhD students.

Located at NUI Galway in the west of Ireland and under the direction of Professor Cathal Seoighe, the program will produce a cohort of highly-trained scientists who will be able to effectively engage and find solutions to the data science challenges we face in realizing the potential impact genomics will have on the future of health and society.
The education program invited collaboration from over 70 genomics data science group leaders across five institutions in Ireland.
As one of the supporting partners, Genuity Science™ will host a number of PhD students, who will be working on projects related to genomics of common and rare diseases.
In supporting this program, Genuity Science™ is contributing to the training of a generation of highly-qualified PhD graduates to effectively demonstrate the collective potential of genomics and data science.
