Melbourne Genomics has launched a new project to support innovation in genomic data management.
Genivate 23 is here to help clinicians, scientists and researchers to streamline and scale up genomic testing.
Open to members of the Melbourne Genomics Health Alliance, Genivate 23 includes idea generation, pitching and prototyping. The project offers access to expert advice and seed funding of up to $80,000 to turn ideas into prototypes.
Keeley Reade, a genomic health informatician at Melbourne Genomics, explains that Genivate 23 was created to explore digital solutions to genomic testing problems.
“Genomics is one of the most complex tests in medicine, with challenges at every step. So, what can we learn from each other? And how can we make it easier for everyone?”
“Maybe ordering a genomic test should be simpler. Or you’d like to try AI tools for variant curation. Or you’d like to stop manually uploading and downloading data. Whatever the issue, Genivate 23 can help you road-test a solution.”
Genivate 23 kicks off in August, with idea generation workshops facilitated by digital innovation experts Curve Tomorrow.
