eMerge Sites

The eMERGE 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. Each center participating in the consortium is uniquely situated to provide critical resources to this highly collaborative and productive network. Each site combines a biobank or study cohort with extensive genomic data and access to clinical data derived from electronic medical records. Sites are geographically dispersed and have diverse patient populations, including two sites focusing specifically on pediatrics. Member sites include:

External Scientific Panel

Chairperson: Howard McLeod, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill

The Network receives regular guidance from a panel of experts, external to the Network member sites. The External Scientific Panel (ESP) holds annual conference calls with the principal investigators from each site, and the ESP additionally attends one in-person meeting each calendar year. Recommendations from the ESP are gathered and addressed by the PI Group and disseminated through the Network for response and action by each.
