The Kinghorn Centre for Clinical Genomics (KCCG) is led by Associate Professor Marcel Dinger and comprises eleven teams or operational units that work closely together.
Since 2012, KCCG has grown to more than 60 team members with skills across sequencing, informatics, clinical interpretation, business development, and education.
|The teams are:|
|Genome Sequencing||Phenomics||Information Architecture|
|Production and Clinical Informatics||Rare Disease Genomics||Program Management|
The Genome Sequencing team is focused on generating large scale and high quality genomic sequencing data.
|Ben Lundie||Justin Stockmyer||Dr Maria Lubka-Pathak||Dr Jiang Tao|
|Garry Chadbond||Senel Idrisoglu||Dahlia Saroufim||Dominik Kaczorowski|
Chief of Informatics, Dr Warren Kaplan, oversees KCCG’s high performance computing infrastructure and informatics implementation.

Aaron Statham leads the Production and Clinical Informatics team that implements systems to apply whole genome sequencing in an accredited, clinical setting. His team also develops clinical-grade software solutions to manage, analyse and deliver large-scale genomic data sets.

|Dr Liviu Constantinescu||Dmitry Degrave||Shane Husson||Binoop Nanu|
Dr Mark Cowley and his translational research team develop and apply bioinformatic approaches to decipher the full medical value of the human genome. These methods are applied to inherited genetic diseases, and the study of tumour evolution in response to therapy, including circulating biomarkers.

The Phenomics team, led by Dr Tudor Groza, uses computational methods to represent, acquire (from publications or clinical summaries), integrate (within and across multiple species) and process clinical phenotypes in the context of both rare and complex disorders. The team's work will ultimately inform automated clinical decision support.

Dr Tony Roscioli leads a team of medical professionals who provide expert genomic analysis for diagnosis and gene identification in Mendelian diseases.
|Dr Tony Roscioli||Dr Lisa Ewans||Dr Madhura Bakshi||Dr Georgina Hollway|
The Program Management team, led by Dr Andrew Stone, is responsible for the broad oversight of KCCG operations. This includes: the management of flagship-sequencing projects initiated through the Sydney Genomics Collaborative; the management and promotion of KCCG sequencing services to both the national and international research community; the development and maintenance of new and on going collaborations and partnerships; and the procurement of external funding for genomic research and infrastructure.
|Dr Andrew Stone||Kerith-Rae Dias||Joice Kuroiwa-Trzmielina|
Our education and communication program, led by Bronwyn Terrill, focuses on engaging health care professionals and the diverse communities that make up our population with the complex and fast-moving field of genomics.
|Bronwyn Terrill||Melissa Vincent||Krista Recsei||Andrew Gibb|
The impact of clinical genomics is becoming widespread and its importance to diverse disciplines is becoming increasingly recognised. KCCG engages closely with scientists, clinicians and ethicists through visiting appointments. These individuals bring additional expertise to KCCG and provide a mechanism for reciprocal engagement into the broader genomics community.
