The Centre for Population Genomics is a national initiative, jointly housed at the Garvan Institute of Medical Research and the Murdoch Children’s Research Institute. We work all across the country and collaborate with partners internationally and in Australia.
At CPG, we celebrate and respect diversity in our team and our work. We believe that including all human diversity in genomic research will empower medical care that benefits everyone.
We acknowledge the First Australian peoples on whose traditional lands we live and work across the country and pay our respects to their elders past, present and emerging. We gratefully accept the invitation in the Uluru Statement from the Heart “to walk with us in a movement of the Australian people for a better future”.
