Clinical Genetics Research

The Yorkshire Regional Genetics Service offers patients the chance to take part in research studies. These research studies are usually designed to help us understand more about the way genetic conditions affect our health.

Some of the research studies that we are involved with include cancer genetics, Huntington’s Disease and many other rare genetic conditions. 

A member of our genetics research team would always explain the nature of the research to you so that you can decide whether you wish to participate.  No research would be carried out without your consent. You are under absolutely no obligation to take part in research studies and your care would not be affected if you decide not to.
