Professor Leslie Burnett is Principal Medical Geneticist and Medical Director within the Kinghorn Centre for Clinical Genomics at the Garvan Institute of Medical Research.

Dr Burnett is a Clinical Pathologist, with scope of practice in both Genetic Pathology and Chemical Pathology (Clinical Chemistry). He is a Conjoint Professor at St Vincent’s Clinical School, UNSW Medicine, Honorary Professor in Pathology and Genetic Medicine in the Northern Clinical School, Faculty of Medicine and Health, University of Sydney, and has been an Honorary Associate of the School of Information Technologies at the University of Sydney.

He pioneered the development of a number of pathology and genetics initiatives, which are today mainstream clinical services. These include founding Australia’s first Community Genetics program, being Medical Director of Australasia’s first clinically accredited Whole Genome Sequencing laboratory, developing the world’s first pre-analytical quality assurance programs in pathology, and founding Australia’s national peak body for public pathology (now Public Pathology Australia). He has served as Ministerial appointee, Chairman, or President of a number of National and International bodies in pathology and genetics.

His current interests are in the areas of genetic pathology and genomics (especially in machine learning automation of clinical genomic diagnosis, and modelling of genomic population screening) and computational biology (especially in mechanisms of genomic regulation). He is a passionate teacher and communicator about the genetics and genomics revolution.
