Prof

Sylvia Metcalfe

 

Sylvia Metcalfe is Professor in Medical Genetics in the Department of Paediatrics at the University of Melbourne and Group Leader of Genetics Education and Health Research (in the Genetics theme) at MCRI. She has a BSc (Hons) and a PhD in biochemistry from the UK, with a broad background of biomedical laboratory based-research from London, New York and Melbourne spanning about 18 years.

Since 1997 her research interests have moved away from the lab, and now include the understanding of genetics by health professionals and the community especially in terms of the implications of genetic technologies, genetic screening and testing, and the impact of genetic diagnosis. She teaches human genetics to a range of undergraduate and postgraduate students at The University of Melbourne, as well as providing continuing professional development nationally and internationally, and has produced a number of educational resources.
