My Cancer, My DNA - Shaping genomic sequencing uptake in UK healthcare

Can you help with a study?

My Cancer, My DNA aims to gather the thoughts and opinions of those affected by cancer on the practical, societal, and ethical implications of the use of whole genome sequencing in cancer prediction, diagnosis, and treatment.

Genetic Alliance UK is currently recruiting cancer patients, and families of patients, to complete a series of online activities that will ask for their opinions on different ethical aspects of whole genome sequencing, including finding out about incidental findings and data privacy. The sessions will take around a half hour a week over six weeks, and can be completed at home at any time convenient to the participant.

You can find out more information here:

If you are interested in taking part as an individual then please register online at this address:

Please contact Angela Wipperman either by email at or by phone on 020 7704 3141, if you have any questions.

Many thanks,

The Ovacome Team.
