InGeNA the industry voice for the future of genomics in Australia


Planning for Australia’s genomics workforce

Australia has a highly skilled health workforce with diverse educational backgrounds and varying degrees of genomic literacy. We are well placed to build a confident and capable workforce that can integrate genomics into everyday practice and foster a culture of continuous learning. Join our expert speakers as they delve into the various aspects of developing and sustaining our genomics workforce; from defining the knowledge and skills needed, to providing a standardised framework, and ensuring that the future of genomics is ethical and inclusive.

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

VISION Realising the full potential of genomics to personalise healthcare

MISSION To harness the collective skills and expertise of industry to integrate genomics into healthcare

Genomics technology

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.
