Centre for Population Genomics

Beneficiary Profile

Working to create a world in which genomic information enables comprehensive disease prediction, accurate diagnosis and effective therapeutics for all people.

A joint initiative between Murdoch Children’s Research Institute and Garvan Institute of Medical Research, the Centre for Population Genomics, led by Professor Daniel MacArthur seeks to create a world in which genomic information enables comprehensive disease prediction, accurate diagnosis and effective therapeutics for all people.

Genomic medicine uses the information in a person’s genes to guide disease diagnosis and decisions about suitable treatments. In the future, health will be based on an individualised model of care, informed by the data contained in a person’s genes.

Australia, thanks to its strengths in both research and healthcare, has an opportunity to be an international leader in the development of genomic medicine and its application to the entire population. But much remains to be done.
