Claire Wade

Professor Claire Wade is an international expert in domestic animal genomics. She was a key investigator in the Mouse and Dog genome projects and in teams that have established some of the most applied gene mapping strategies used by genomics scientists every day. In 2009, Claire led the equine genome sequencing consortium before returning to Australia to continue her work on canine genomics as the first female professor appointed in the then Faculty of Veterinary Science at the University of Sydney. Her current research is in the field of quantitative trait genetics with an emphasis in companion animal genomics. Her group applies the latest genomic sequencing methods to better understand companion animal and wildlife health, behaviour, and disease. She and the students that she supervises use customized computer scripting and big data to investigate the genetic causation of disease and behaviour in companion animals and wildlife. She has attracted more than $67M in research funding, 120 refereed publications and 21,412 citations (google scholar).
