A collaborative approach is critical to the work of InGeNA. We work on the principle that to make progress efficiently we need to reduce duplication of effort and make a meaningful contribution.  We want to be inclusive in everything we do.

InGeNA has recently joined the steering committee of Clinical Trials: Thinking Smarter (CT:IQ) which supports the collaborative work of stakeholders whose mission is to get “Australia Thinking Smarter” about the conduct of clinical trials. 

Around 20 organisations work together on the steering group of CT:IQ, a not-for-profit group which aims to improve the impact and quality of Australian clinical trials. 

We are looking forward to seeing what projects and initiatives we can make a contribution to in coming months.

On another note, next Tuesday 22 June we have our first national genomics industry event when we host an online conference day as part of  HealthData21.  

Our special guests include the Hon Jaala Pulford MLC, the Victorian Minister for Innovation, Medical Research and the Digital Economy who is giving an opening address. We also look forward to hearing from Prof Kathryn North AC, who leads Australian Genomics.

It’s not too late to register and join in on the day to gain some insights into the work of InGeNA and the genomics community.
