About Phenomics Australia:

Phenomics Australia is a forward-thinking research infrastructure provider enabling research discovery and high-impact healthcare outcomes in precision medicine.

Established in 2007, we are a founding member of the National Collaborative Research Infrastructure Strategy (NCRIS) and have since grown to span several locations across Australia. Through these openly accessible service delivery centres, we offer specialised infrastructure, research services, and technical expertise dedicated to advancing our fundamental understanding of health and disease, and enabling next-generation innovations in healthcare and therapeutic development to benefit all Australians.

With the advancement of health genomics and precision medicine, there exists a significant opportunity for Phenomics Australia to be ambitious in how we develop our support for biomedical researchers and clinicians to discover the genetic drivers of human disease. Leveraging our established strengths, we continue to deliver new investments in cutting-edge capabilities to address unmet research needs and national health priorities. We deploy our extensive experience to pursue valuable new collaborations and opportunities for national and international leadership, further enhancing our engagement with academia, healthcare, and industry.
