Victoria will become the place for genomic innovation, investment and jobs.
Genomics is a team sport that needs many disciplines: whether it’s pathologists and medical scientists to conduct tests and analyse data, bioinformaticians and data scientists to develop the analytical tools they require, or clinicians to request tests and use them to treat patients.
Many new career opportunities will open up as genomics becomes part of routine healthcare in Victoria.
Here's a detailed list of professions involved in genomic medicine.
