About Us

Macquarie University’s Centre for Economic Impacts of Genomic Medicine (GenIMPACT) is a strategic initiative to undertake innovative research on the impact of genomic testing and targeted therapy on patients and cascade testing on extended family members. Our vision is to provide research excellence with high policy relevance that reflects the experience of families who experience genetic disorders. Our work on genomics is built on our internationally recognised research program on the impacts of ill health on the capacity to work and its cascading impacts on income, superannuation and savings, income in retirement for individuals, and increased welfare payments and reduced taxation revenue for the government.

We have an extensive multidisciplinary collaborative network spanning other academic organisations, government, private industry and non-government organisations. Our research has been influential in the formulation of public policy.

Macquarie is a university engaged with the real and often complex problems and opportunities that define our lives.
