Our Research Activities

The Golden Helix Foundation is involved in multidisciplinary sciientific collaborative projects in the field of translational research. In particular, the Golden Helix Foundation coordinates a European project to delineate the pharmacogenomic map in Europe, in an effort to integrate pharmacogenomics in developing countries. Also, since its establishment in 2003, the Golden Helix Foundation has actively participated to develop the Golden Helix Server, where a number of National/Ethnic Genetic databases and related projects that record the incidence of genetic diseases and the corresponding mutation spectrum in various populations and ethnic groups, are hosted. Finally, the Golden Helix Foundation is involved in a pan-European effort to assist society, the general public and healthcare professionals to better understand Genetics and to establish, in conjunction with research organizations, public health guidelines pertaining to the clinical implementation of pharmacogenomics in everyday medical practice.
