About the Roundtable The Roundtable on Genomics and Precision Health brings together leaders from government, academia, industry, foundations, associations, patient communities, and other interested groups to meet and discuss global issues surrounding the translation of genomics and genetics research findings into medicine, public health, education, and policy. The primary purpose of the roundtable is to foster dialogue across sectors and among interested parties and institutions and to illuminate and scrutinize critical scientific and policy issues where roundtable engagement and input will help further the field. The roundtable membership identifies scientific and policy issues where discussion and collaboration will help enable the translation of genomics into health care applications. Specific issues and agenda topics are determined by the roundtable members and span a broad range of areas relevant to the translation process. Current areas of emphasis are described in greater detail below and include innovations in the discovery and development of precision therapeutics and technologies; clinical implementation of genomic medicine; inequities in the research database, workforce, and access to genetic services; and fostering a dialogue across interested parties within genomics and precision health. To achieve its objectives, the roundtable conducts structured discussions, meetings, and public workshops, enters into information-gathering activities, develops viewpoints and perspectives, organizes and supports collaboratives, and publishes workshop proceedings.

The members and staff of the Roundtable on Genomics and Precision Health continue to work toward their vision of realizing the full potential of health for all through genomics and precision health by bringing together diverse voices to encourage innovation and actions that foster the wide adoption of and equitable access to the benefits of genomics and precision health. During 2022, Roundtable members explored topics such as the value of and protections for genomic data and the policies surrounding them; reporting of genetics and genomics advances for both scientific audiences and the general public; workforce diversity, equity, and inclusion issues in industry; and challenges and opportunities for the adoption of genomics outside of the traditional genetics clinic.
