In 2014, Australian Genomics Health Alliance (AGHA) was formed by 50 leading researchers and clinicians, who shared vision for a national network of expert clinicians, researchers and diagnostic geneticists working to provide evidence for an effective and cost-saving approach to clinical genomics in Australia. In 2015, AGHA secured $25million from the NHMRC Targeted Call for Research into Preparing Australia for the Genomics Revolution in Healthcare (Genomics TCR).
We now leverage over $175million in state government and competitive grant funding to drive our activities. Our network has grown from 30 to 78 partner organisations, including the diagnostic pathology and clinical genetics services of all Australian states and territories, along with all the major research and academic institutions.
Our Program and Flagship leads are based all across the country, supported by a central coordination team at the Murdoch Children's Research Institute.
