The Centre is part of the QGHA project - Implementation of genomics into Queensland healthcare: ethical, legal and social implications and policy challenges.

The project aims to develop guidelines and policies that support the introduction of clinical genetics in an ethical, legal and socially responsible manner. Drawing on expertise from UQ, QUT and QIMR Berghofer, the project runs across six themes, from accessibility of genomics data for future use to genomic testing related to rural and Indigenous communities, and exploring existing research and clinical consent processes with the aim of developing a minimum requirement for consent in Queensland.
