Genomics has huge potential to improve healthcare. Nearly 15 years ago, the mystery of the genome was unlocked to capture the imagination of humanity. Now, researchers are taking the potential of the genome and translating it into medical progress and a tool to deliver patient care.
In Australia, the Melbourne Genomics Health Alliance's (the Alliance) vision is for the Australian State of Victoria to be a world leader in the translation and use of clinical genomics in healthcare. The Alliance has taken a clinically-led approach to delivering genomics within the Victorian healthcare system.
This transformational initiative is delivering change through a wide program of work that encompasses workforce development, national and international collaborations, innovation, adoption and real work evidence for the applications of clinical genomics.
Join us at this webinar to:
Understand the enablers and barriers of implementing genomic medicine into clinical practice
Understand the technologies that are enabling the implementation of genomic medicine to accelerate
Understand the genomic medicine landscape, with particular focus on initiatives within Australia
