Professor Matthew Bellgard
BSc (Computer Science/Information Technology, First Class Hons Computer Science) UWA, PhD UWA

Director, Centre for Comparative Genomics (CCG)

About me

My formal qualifications include a PhD from The University of Western Australia in 1994, completing a thesis in Computer Science and Specialising in Artificial Intelligence with applications. In 2005, I became the inaugural Director of the Western Australian State Government Centre of Excellence, the Centre for Comparative Genomics (CCG). The CCG undertakes unique biomedical and agricultural research and development by promoting a collaborative understanding within and across fields of study. Under my leadership, the Centre has attracted over $45m in research funding in the last 13 years and has some 40 staff, most of whom are externally funded. As a Murdoch University Centre, the Director has overall responsibility for the strategic and operational leadership and management of the Centre.

In addition to these responsibilities, I am also Director of iVEC@Murdoch that houses the 2nd largest supercomputer in Australia (ranked #87 in the world in June 2011) and Convenor of the Australian Bioinformatics Facility (ABF), which is one of four national platforms of the National Collaborative Research Infrastructure Scheme (NCRIS) 5.1 Evolving Biomolecular Platforms and Informatics Investment plan. I am co-leader of the Australian consortium in the FP7 EU €12 million RD Connect: an integrated platform connecting registries, biobanks and clinical bioinformatics for rare disease research.
