The focus now is to embed genomics into Victoria’s healthcare system, to ensure a resilient system that is able to respond to current, emerging and future health challenges.

Over the next four years, Melbourne Genomics will accelerate Victorians’ access to the benefits of genomics – quicker and more accurate diagnosis and more precise and efficient treatment.

Through our program of innovation and medical research, Melbourne Genomics will:

  • Drive system-wide adoption of genomics – safely, equitably and efficiently – for patients across Victoria
  • Harness the power of data to accelerate genomic medicine and research and enable precision care
  • Expand and embed genomic expertise, equipping the healthcare and laboratory workforce Victoria-wide.

Genomics is a vitally important capability of Victoria’s health system, necessary to deliver world-class care for Victorians.

This final phase of work is funded by the Victorian Government and the 10 Alliance members. Read more here.


We could talk genomics all day, but we’ll send you only what’s useful and interesting.

Melbourne Genomics acknowledges the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation, on whose lands we work, and all First Nations peoples across Victoria. We pay respect to Elders past and present. We also acknowledge the First Nations health professionals, researchers and leaders who are shaping the future of genomic medicine.
