The Human Genome Epidemiology Network (HuGENet) recently launched a global network of consortia working on human genome epidemiology. This Network of Investigator Networks aims to create a resource to share information, offer methodologic support, generate inclusive overviews of studies conducted in specific fields, and to facilitate rapid confirmation of findings. In October 2005, HuGENet brought together representatives from established and emerging networks in order to share their experiences at a workshop in Cambridge, United Kingdom. In advance of the meeting, a qualitative questionnaire was distributed to workshop participants. The questionnaire elicited information on experiences and practices in building and maintaining consortia. This chapter reports on the numerous challenges and their possible solutions as identified by the workshop participants, as well as new opportunities offered by the network approach to genetic and genomic epidemiology.
