NCIG is bringing Indigenous decision-making into a high-performance biomedical research environment. NCIG is dedicated wholly to bringing the benefits of genomic medicine to Indigenous Australians. It is doing this by creating Indigenous genomic data resources which will be available to researchers, subject to appropriate access mechanisms, for a wide range of Indigenous-focused genomic health and medical research.
NCIG has built a foundation on which Australia can prepare for the transformation of medical research and healthcare led by genomics. NCIG is ensuring that Indigenous Australians are included in the design and implementation of this important frontier of medical research, and sharing in the benefits of this astonishing field of research and discovery.
