Biography

Dr Melanie Zeppel researches genomic medicine, data analytics and microsimulation modelling at GenIMPACT, the Centre for the Economic Impact of Genomic Medicine at Macquarie University. Her research involves data analysis and publishing on genomic testing, and microsimulation models. Her work includes the socioeconomic impacts of genomic medicine and childhood cancer, vision impairment, whole exome sequencing, and whole genome sequencing, and the impact of genetic diagnosis on diagnostic pathways, and the resultant costs and benefits to individuals and government. Previous work includes the biological impacts of climate change including drought, elevated CO2 and heat waves.
