Melbourne Genomics Health Alliance
From breakthrough discoveries to advances in great care, research is essential in transforming the future of children’s health.
Genomic medicine and exploring how it can help young patients is a new research initiative pivotal to contemporary research at The Royal Children’s Hospital.
Genomic medicine is the sequencing and analysis of a person’s genes. By looking at an individual child’s genes, diagnosis and treatment can be tailored to each child.
The Royal Children’s Hospital is a founding member of the Melbourne Genomics Health Alliance, which brings leading local healthcare, research and academic organisations together to conduct further research.
Their vision is for Victoria to be a world leader in the use of genomics in healthcare.
The Good Friday Appeal is pleased to fund the hospital’s membership to the Alliance, providing an expanded world-wide networks to the hospital’s researchers and clinicians.
