The PHG Foundation is a non-profit organization based in a bioscience cluster in Cambridge, UK that is a leading international center for public health genomics . They work to identify and promote opportunities for biomedical innovation to improve health and tackle disease, developing models and capacities for translation into improved clinical and public health policies and practices.
