About Us

Macquarie University’s Centre for Economic Impacts of Genomic Medicine (GenIMPACT) is a strategic initiative to undertake innovative research on the impacts of genomic testing and targeted therapy on patients, their extended family members. Our vision is to provide research excellence with high policy relevance that reflects the experience of families affected by genetic disorders. Our work on genomics is built on our internationally recognised research program on the impacts of ill health on 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 clinical services, 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. Since our foundation 54 years ago, we have aspired to be a different type of university. Over the years, we’ve grown to become the centre of a vibrant local and global community.
