From 2016-2020, our projects laid the foundations for genomics in Victoria.

Evaluating clinical utility of genomics in care

Projects that investigated the impact of genomic testing in diagnosis and care for patients with genetic diseases or cancer, and in controlling 'superbugs'.

Developing the genomic workforce

Projects that built the workforce capability needed to deliver genomic medicine.

Considerations in implementing genomics

Projects that investigated key considerations in bringing genomics into clinical care: patient perspectives, the impact on genetic services, and the role of preventative health findings and new technologies.

Genomic data and information systems 

Projects that developed the infrastructure, software, policies, procedures and agreements necessary to ensure ethical and secure access to genomic data for clinicians and patients.

National and international connections

Projects that communicated knowledge, experience and results, and that built national and international connections.


We could talk genomics all day, but we’ll send you only what’s useful and interesting.

Melbourne Genomics acknowledges the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation, on whose lands we work, and all First Nations peoples across Victoria. We pay respect to Elders past and present. We also acknowledge the First Nations health professionals, researchers and leaders who are shaping the future of genomic medicine.
