Public Health Genomics Program
We explore the role of genetic information in public and population health. Our program conducts innovative research centred around the genetic analysis of large cohort studies, clinical trials and registries.
We're part of the School of Public Health and Preventive Medicine.
We aim to address major issues faced by the field of human genetics, including how to convert large amounts of genomic sequence data into meaningful medical information, and interpret and disclose genetic information responsibly.
A-GLIMMER is a research project which aims to monitor the impact and effectiveness of the moratorium on the use of genetic test results in life insurance underwriting in Australia.
