The Disease Dilemmas campaign challenges you to choose one disease to support over another by asking: Who would you donate to?


Of course, it’s an impossible dilemma and a choice we cannot make. Fortunately, you don’t need to. Through genomics research, scientists at Garvan are making breakthroughs in not just one, but many devastating diseases from the rarest or un-diagnosable and un-treatable to the most common and widespread.

Genomics is the study of genes and other information encoded in your genome — the complete set of unique instructions in your DNA. Every disease also has a genetic component. Through genomics research, we can better understand what our genetic information – and our genetic variations – mean for our health.
