Clinical Geneticist Director
Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre


2:30 PM CASE STUDY: Mainstreaming Clinical Genomics – Where Will We Be in 3-5 Years Time?

Australia is 3-5 years off from mainstreaming clinical genomics and applying it into nongenetic disciplines. In particular is the potential for preventative healthcare and tailored patient management as new technology enables rapid genome sequencing and the interpretation of genomic data. This presentation will discuss the transformative shift in genomics and discuss what we can anticipate in the not so distant future:

  • Recognising the subtle difference between realtime and point-of-care genomics
  • Opportunities to apply genomics in non-genetics disciplines such as cardiology and direct to consumer
  • How do we apply technology in a safe and sensible way and educating the community and industry to help them adapt to this shift
