Careers in genomics: diverse qualifications & pathways

The use of genomics in healthcare is increasing rapidly as the cost and speed of genome sequencing reduce. This requires a new workforce, upskilled in genomics, to help meet demand. From clinicians knowing how to use the right test, for the right patient, at the right time, to medical scientists knowing how to curate, interpret and classify variants, through to bioinformaticians and other types of data scientists being able to create and continuously refine the pipelines and software to handle and curate big data.

At this in-person event, we’ll hear from four people working at the interface of genomics and bioinformatics. Different qualifications and career pathways, each contributing to the implementation of genomics into healthcare.

This in-person event is co-hosted by Melbourne Bioinformatics and Melbourne Genomics.

It is free but you must register in advance.
