GENEius

The GENEius programme is Jnetics’ student-focused education and screening initiative. Its target audience is Jewish Y12 and university students across the country.

Through the GENEius programme students are:

  • Educated about Jewish genetic disorders (JGDs) and the importance of carrier screening in their prevention.
  • Able to access free and responsible carrier screening* for 9 of the most severe recessive JGDs**

Via GENEius screening, students find out if they carry a severe JGD, gaining the information they need to avoid passing on a JGD to their future children. Through this programme, Jnetics hopes to eliminate all new cases severe recessive JGDs from UK Jewish community.
