Genomic Medicine Lab
We aim to use genomics to understand, predict, treat, and prevent disease. We have an interest in both inherited and acquired genetic variation, and a focus on diseases of inflammation, ageing, and blindness. Our research is structured around three broad themes:
- Population and clinical genomics – using large population and disease cohorts to understand the impact of common, rare, and somatic genetic variation in disease biology and risk.
- Cellular genomics – applying cellular assays to measure the impact of germline and somatic variation at high resolution, including through the use of blood and tissue samples from carefully phenotyped clinical cases.
- Genomic medicine – through strong clinical partnerships, develop evidence and resources to support the integration of genetic and non-genetic information in clinical care.
Our work is closely aligned with three of Garvan's core strengths: large-scale population genomics through the Centre for Population Genomics, clinical genomics though the Kinghorn Centre for Clinical Genomics, and cellular genomics through the Garvan-Weizmann Centre for Cellular Genomics.
We're currently recruiting, with more roles to follow in 2021:
If you're talented, collaborative, and passionate about using genomics to improve health, we'd love to hear from you.
