To facilitate genomics testing and patient matching for clinical trials and focussed therapies the Garvan will engage at least 5 companies and have 250 tests conducted on a purpose built SME engagement platform.
This project will deliver a molecular profiling platform to increase capacity in Australia’s clinical trial sector, and increase the attractiveness of Australia to the international pharmaceutical industry. The platform includes a clinically-accredited molecular test for cancer trials, a genomics data platform to support clinical trials, and patient-matching capabilities to facilitate clinical trial recruitment.
Outcomes: This project successfully developed a comprehensive genome profiling platform to enable precision cancer medicine. The platform has been successfully transferred to SydPath enabling sector wide access. The project has held 13 training an information events, promoting the potential of the test to over 450 individuals
