InGeNA is a single voice for Australian industry partners contributing to the rapidly developing field of genomics.
Alliance partners share a vision for Australia’s leadership in the adoption of genomics in healthcare.
– Better health outcomes
– Healthcare value and affordability
– A trusted, equitable and ethical genomics ecosystem
Collaboration across the key sectors of diagnostics/pathology, tech and pharma will ensure long and far-reaching benefits for Australian health consumers.
InGeNA the industry voice for the future of genomics in Australia
InGeNA report launch webinar | Valuing the impact of genomics on healthcare in Australia
Monday 13 December | 1:00pm - 1:45pm AEDT | Online via Zoom
The Industry Genomics Network Alliance – InGeNA – Is an alliance of 21 industry members committed to realising the full potential of genomics to personalise healthcare. One of InGeNA’s first reports - “Valuing the Impact of Genomics on Healthcare in Australia” - will be presented at this public webinar. Join us to hear about the case studies, the key outcomes and understand the opportunities genomics holds for individuals, families and carers, society, and our health system.
Who we are
InGeNA was formed by a group of industry organisations, hosted by the Australasian Institute of Digital Health (AIDH), to bring a shared perspective on critically important areas underpinning the future of genomics.
- A patient-centred approach
- Digital infrastructure & principles
- Workforce planning & skills
- Government policy making

The promise of genomics is to help Australians live longer and healthier lives by integrating genomics into the management of health and integrating genomics information and workflows into the health system.
The current focus of genomics is on using individual genetic information to inform tailored healthcare decisions.
Genomics is also expected to have a large impact at the population level in the future. Genomics has the potential to enable earlier diagnosis, improve the identification of the best treatment for the patient, and assist in disease prevention by analysing many genes or the entire genome (comprising all 22,000 genes present in human DNA) at once.
