HUMAN GENOME MEETING 2016, 28 February - 3 March 2016, Hilton Americas, Houston, USA

Submit your abstracts here before 7 January 2016!


This will be the first time the HGM meeting has been held in the US - and we are proud and excited for the opportunity to bring science from across the globe here to Texas.


HGM 2016 will have a unifying theme of translation as its core, focusing on the current state and future direction of implementing genomics driven approached in diagnosis, treatment, and management of cancer and genetic disease, with a specific focus on strategies and technologies for implementation. 


Drawing on the expertise from the Texas Medical Center's constituent institutions and a truly broad-reaching, international line up of experts, the meeting promises to be both a dynamic forum for scientific exchange and a unique opportunity to bring together global expertise all focused on the understanding of the impact of that most fundamental variable, that encoded in our genomes, in the context of health and disease.
