Harnessing the science of DNA to improve the health and well-being of Australia's First Peoples.
Our DNA. Our people. Our stories. Our way.
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.
Acknowledgement of country
We acknowledge and celebrate the First Australians on whose traditional lands we work, and pay our respects to the elders of the Ngunnawal people past and present.
NCIG is a substantial and long-lasting initiative, creating a resource with benefits that may take decades or even generations to emerge.
Your donation will help sustain the next phase of NCIG’s development, including state-of-the-art storage of the biospecimens and a full program of internal and collaborative research.
