Dr. Sebastian Lunke is currently the Head of the Division of Genetics and Genomics at VCGS and the Murdoch Children’s Research Institute in Melbourne, Australia. Following his PhD in epigenetics and several years working as a post-doctoral research fellow at the University of Melbourne, where he focused on assay development for cancer genomics, he started re-training as a medical scientist by joining the Faculty of Science at the Royal College of Pathologist Australasia as the first scientist trainee fellow in 2014. Today, his team at VCGS constitutes one of the largest NATA accredited clinical genomics laboratories in Australia, with a strong focus on delivery of high quality clinical genomics assay and translation of novel technologies into clinical practise.
