Our updated visual brand builds upon our first five years, and celebrates our next phase of work as we continue our mission to ensure genomic advances continue to be integrated into research, policy and healthcare practice.
Australian Genomics recently brought together experts from around the globe to agree on a set of standards to describe genomics education and it’s evaluation, published this month in Genetics in Medicine.
Australian Genomics has officially entered its next phase after securing federal funding for the period 2021 to 2023. The three-year Australian Government grant, administered by the NHMRC, will progress our mission to support genomic research and its translation into clinical practice.
Dynamic consent, rather than broad consent, is a relatively recent phenomenon, and one that has been given impetus by an Australian Genomics innovation featured in the latest edition of the European Journal of Human Genetics.
