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
The power of genomics: From patient to market
Tuesday 9 November | 12:00pm – 1:00pm AEDT | Online via Zoom
Join this webinar to hear from two expert speakers on unlocking the benefits and the immense potential of genomics in Australia, specifically around treating mental health and the implications for industry.
Regina Crameri presents the current genomics landscape in Australia, including government genomics initiatives, funding schemes and a case study on international collaboration. Ajeet Singh will then talk about the use of genomics to accurately predict the correct mental health treatment, and the value in shifting away from ‘trial-and-error’ processes to get it right the first time.
Who we are

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.
