Professor Matthew Bellgard is a computer scientist by background with a PhD from the University of Western Australia in the field of artificial intelligence. Professor Bellgard is the inaugural Director of the Centre for Comparative Genomics (CCG) based at Murdoch University. The CCG undertakes research in the biomedical, biological and agricultural sciences on themes as diverse as human health, personalised medicine, food security, environmental management, animal and plant genomics and pathogens and viruses. The key to the CCG’s ability to operate at the boundaries between these diverse fields lies in its unique mix of capabilities and expertise embracing technological innovation in the enabling disciplines of bioinformatics, genomics, molecular therapies, software engineering, and super and cloud computing. Professor Bellgard has a particular interest in rare diseases and is co-leader of the Australian consortium in the FP7 €12 million RD Connect program that focuses on providing an integrated platform connecting registries, biobanks and clinical bioinformatics. He is also Project Director of the design and deployment of core ICT systems in the health sector.
