QGHA Round 1 Projects

QGHA Round 1 Projects

The integration of genomics into everyday healthcare has the capacity to transform the delivery of health services globally with faster diagnosis, new treatments, and more cost effective service delivery. The QGHA will focus on a number of clinical demonstration projects and capability building workstreams to support the use of genomics in the healthcare setting.


Clinical Demonstration Projects

The four key disease areas selected as Clinical Demonstration Projects in Round 1 are:

  • Melanoma
  • Lung cancer
  • Infectious disease, and
  •  Maturity onset diabetes of the young (MODY).

Capability Building Workstreams

The five capability building areas aim to establish infrastructure and capacity to support the use of genomics within Queensland’s health services.

QGHA's Capability Building Workstreams are:

  • Genomic Information Management
  • Genomic Testing Innovation
  • Genomic Workforce Development
  • Ethics, Legal and Social Implications of Genomics; and
  • Evaluation of Clinical Genomics.
