Here are the key learnings from our mid-term evaluation report that you need to know.

Work collaboratively and openly.

Our program to date has included 68 organisations across the community, research, healthcare, digital health and education sectors.

Consumer and community partnerships are crucial to health system change.

The program engaged with 49 diverse community stakeholders from 2021-2023.

Grow from what’s known.

Experts across the Alliance are piloting a Genomics Capability Assessment Tool. Our clinician-specific resources have been used over 950 times within the first six months.

A combination of strategies and approaches is needed to build a sustainable and skilled workforce. 

Over 1660 people have participated in 50 Melbourne Genomics professional education activities. We’ve also funded 29 clinicians to tackle implementation of genomics in 13 specialty areas.

Think big (data). 

Data generated from genomic testing is huge, and much more complex than standard pathology tests. Medical laboratories need solutions designed for the reality of clinical settings that address their needs, not retrofitted research software.

Six pathology laboratories have used Genomical® to run over 20,000 genomic tests to date.

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.
