Genomics in Society

Research area:  Genetics

Our research promotes understanding of genetics and genomics, and informs evidence-based practice, among families, health professionals and the community.

As genomic technologies continue to expand, the impact this will have on individuals, families, health professionals and the wider community has educational, ethical and broader social implications.

We explore and evaluate the provision and impact of genomic technologies and genetic services, as well as contribute to the development of educational programs. 

Our group combines experience in genetics education, ethics and genetic counselling with mixed methods approaches, and a focus on qualitative research. This unique blend of expertise has led to the group becoming one of the world leaders in the research of the clinical and social implications of genomics.
