Genomic Medicine Lab

Researchers in our lab investigate the relationship between genetic variation and disease.

We use genomics to understand, predict, treat and prevent disease. We have an interest in both inherited and acquired genetic variation, and focus on diseases of inflammation, ageing and blindness. Our research is structured around three of Garvan’s core strengths:

  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. Genomic medicine: developing evidence and resources through strong clinical partnerships, to support the integration of genetic and non-genetic information into clinical care
