Organisation profile

The Genetics and Insurance Research Centre (GIRC) was set up in 1999. The development of human genetics and genetic testing has enormous implications, not only for medicine, but also for the way in which health care, long-term care and all kinds of insurance are funded, and it is essential that these outcomes are researched at a time when major policy decisions are being considered by governments all over the world. GIRC's remit is to develop mathematical and actuarial models to estimate the costs of genetic knowledge to individuals, to insurers and to service providers.
