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
Acute care genomics: Rapid rare disease diagnosis on a national scale
This study considered rapid genomic testing for critically ill children with suspected genetic conditions. Professor Zornitza Stark, a lead investigator on the project, discussed the program’s effectiveness and the health economic impact. Kirsten Boggs then talked about the same program from her perspective as a genetic counsellor, discussing the effect that the program has on the families involved.
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

“We want Australians to have equity and access to the best that genomics can offer, now and in the future. With industry collaboration through InGeNA, there will be a single voice to have input into strategic planning, governance and funding directions through government, research centres and consumer health.”
As we start the new year, InGeNA continues our mission to realise the full potential of genomics to personalise healthcare. This year we look forward to working closely with our partners to advocate for the benefits genomics can bring to both patient outcomes and...
Our final quarterly members forum for 2022 is scheduled for Thursday 15 December, 4:00pm - 5:00pm AEDT. At this forum we will hear from two collaborators who have recently been awarded MRFF grants. InGeNA provided a letter of support to each of these applications....
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.
