The Medical Services Advisory Committee (MSAC) regularly seeks targeted feedback from Australian Genomics on genetic and genomic-related applications for public funding of medical services and technologies. Australian Genomics develops feedback for submissions by consulting with expert members drawn from its 450-strong network of professionals, to put forward unified, evidence-based submissions.
