The HMRI Information Based Medicine Program is paving the way for a personalised approach to healthcare, informing the development of patient-tailored treatment to a host of diseases that are a result of the genetic background of an individual and environmental factors.
Researchers are utilising instruments that can capture enormous amounts of data followed by complex computational analysis to extract meaningful information from clinical and molecular findings to identify disease associated genetic patterns.
The Program draws together the disciplines of genetics, epidemiology and bioinformatics with clinical information and population data, to provide information to life scientists that can be used to predict the risk of disease and the likely response to different treatments
Researchers in the Information Based Medicine Program are currently focussed on:
HMRI is one of only two sites in Australia where core basic research in bioinformatics is linked directly with clinical research practice. Many researchers working within the program are also members of other HMRI Research Programs, establishing unique and productive
research synergies and collaborations.
The Information Based Medicine Program has many members who are affiliated with the University’s Priority Research Centre in Bioinformatics, Biomarker Discovery and Information-Based Medicine, and also incorporates:
