Genomic Medicine Lab

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:

  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 – 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 recruiting!

If you're talented, collaborative, and passionate about using genomics to improve health, we'd love to hear from you.
