This year’s Australian Genomics National Conference is fast approaching, with investigators, partners and other members of our national network expected to descend on Melbourne for the event on September 5 and 6.

The conference will be held in the Pavilion Room at the Arts Centre, Melbourne

Our network has more than doubled since our last conference in 2017 so it is a great opportunity for us all to share and showcase many of the activities and outcomes that have occurred across our Programs and Flagships since then.

A dynamic program is being developed, with leading genomics speakers, lively panel discussions and Q and A sessions.

External parties interested in attending the conference are asked to please enquire with the Australian Genomics coordination centre

Please note, as the Program is still under development, the timing of certain sessions may change.
