Mark is Associate Professor in Health Law and Regulation, Melbourne Law School and the Deputy Director of HeLEX@Melbourne. His research is focused upon the regulation of personal information with emphasis upon health information and genetic data. He is interested in the law of data protection and the common law duty of confidence and the reconciliation within both legal regimes of protections for privacy and public interest. Mark seeks to challenge any presentation of privacy interests as necessarily antithetical to the public interest and to develop a concept of privacy that is capable of reconciling individual and community (privacy) interests with a broader (public) interest in access, use and management of personal health information.
