Clinical Research Studies
eMERGE Phase III
The Electronic Medical Records and Genomics (eMERGE) Network is a National Institutes of Health (NIH)-organized and funded consortium of U.S. medical research institutions. The Network brings together researchers with a wide range of expertise in genomics, statistics, ethics, informatics, and clinical medicine from leading medical research institutions across the country to conduct research in genomics, including discovery, clinical implementation and public resources (see goals). eMERGE was announced in September 2007 and began its third phase in September 2015.
The primary goal of the eMERGE Network is to develop, disseminate, and apply approaches to research that combine biorepositories with electronic medical record (EMR) systems for genomic discovery and genomic medicine implementation research. In addition, the consortium includes a focus on social and ethical issues such as privacy, confidentiality, and interactions with the broader community.

The Laboratory for Molecular Medicine will provide services such as VCF annotation & filtration, variant assessment & interpretation, report generation, and report delivery in order to support this project.
This does not represent a clinical test that can be ordered through the Laboratory for Molecular Medicine. Referring physicians and patients must be part of the eMERGE Network.
