The Genomic Institute, Genomics in Practice Seminar

Together with the Metro North Health, Health Translation Queensland helped to deliver the first Genomics in Practice seminar on Thursday 24 February 2022.

The online seminar focussed on the clinical translation of genomics into practice. Researchers and clinicians were encouraged to join the seminar and hear from speakers on their journey navigating the application of genomics research, and their experiences in implementing evidence-based change in genomics in practice.
