Melbourne Genomics in the media

Melbourne Genomics featured recently in four media stories, in the lead-up to and during our symposium and free public forum events during November

Patient Michael Wright spoke to Channel 7 News about his cancer and how genomics impacted on his diagnosis and treatment. Patient Bree Faulkner, who has genetic kidney disease, was interviewed by the Herald Sun about having a baby after genomic sequencing gave her more information about her condition, while Executive Director Professor Clara Gaff provided a summary of our current program.
