The Path from Genome-based Research to Population Health: Development of an International Public Health Genomics Network

arrow back to report

Figure 1:

Components of the public health genomics enterprise. The functions and activities shown in blue represent the scope of the enterprise of public health genomics, which can be simply defined as the effective and responsible translation of genome-based knowledge and technologies for the benefit of population health. Initiatives in several countries have already begun this effort (Appendix 1.1). The color yellow represents the generation of knowledge through research; genome-based science and technology (highlighted in red) play a fundamental role. Any new development in modern genomics, or in molecular or cell biology, can legitimately be considered as a potential contributor to innovative approaches to achieving population health. Green represents all the activities, people, institutions and views that make up society in its widest sense, comprising key stakeholders in the success of the translational process.
