The European Society of Human Genetics Conference (ESHG)

The annual ESHG conference is the major scientific and professional event in human genetics which brings together European and international geneticists. The field is developing extremely fast with important implications for basic science, medicine and society.

The scientific programme reflects this broad scope and includes top invited international experts, selected abstract presentations including candidates for young investigators awards, educational sessions and poster presentations. Thus, the conference is a unique opportunity to get inspired for scientific and professional work, share your own results and shape the future of the field.
