Together, cancer meets its match

Omico is a government-backed national network of leading researchers, clinicians and industry partners that’s using precision medicine to unlock new potential in Australian research and turn the tide on cancer. With fast-tracked molecular screening, biomarker-led trial set up and patient enrolment from the entire nation we’re accelerating access to next-generation treatments and preventive strategies, improving outcomes for all Australians affected by cancer.

What we do

video_icon

Omico is…

  • Promoting precision medicine, a game changer in the fight against cancer
  • Uniting Australia’s world-class cancer institutes, researchers, industry partners and government like never before
  • Providing free molecular screening to 25,000 Australians with cancer to match them to innovative new treatments in clinical trials

How our molecular screening works

If you or someone you know has advanced or incurable cancer or is at high-risk for cancer (due to hereditary conditions) then:

  • Your doctor completes an online referral form
  • You sign a consent form
  • Omico assesses the genes and other molecules in your cancer tissue
  • Our experts match results to an existing therapy or clinical trial of a new drug
  • Process takes 8 to 10 weeks

Our progress

10,500+ Patients screened
800 Referring clinicians
6,454     Patients with a treatment recommendation
786 Clinical trial referrals (C1/C2)

Ground-breaking Australian research answers long-standing genetic mystery of why people develop rare hidden cancer

Research led by Omico, the Garvan Institute of Medical Research and UNSW Sydney has generated the first comprehensive genetic map of sarcomas, identifying several new important genes that when inherited can cause this deadly cancer. The research has wide implications for people living with sarcoma and their families – allowing detection of the cancer earlier and potentially improving survival for patients.
