Genomic Medicine 2018
Concertgebouw de VereenigingNijmegen, NETHERLANDS Visit the Venue to read more
Our Benelux conferences continue this year with a new and exciting move and partnership in The Netherlands.
This year we have partnered with Genome Diagnostics Nijmegen and the ESHG-Eurogentest-steering committee to hold the conference at Concertgebouw de Vereeniging (Concert Hall de Vereeniging) on the 10th & 11th October 2018 in Nijmegen.
There will be a clinical NGS Data Analysis Workshop on 9th October at the Concertgebouw with an emphasis on the clinical interpretation of variants – a bottleneck in data analysis that is increasingly being requested by delegates to our conferences and workshops. This will be led by our partners from Genome Diagnostics Nijmegen who have enormous experience in scrutinizing clinical data.
As usual for Biotexcel genomic events this conference itself will focus on the use of Genomics & Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) technologies and tools to look at human disease both in research as well as in a clinical setting.
As a running theme we hope to cover advances in the following areas: Genomics, Next Generation Sequencing Applications and Workflows, Personalized Genomics, the Metagenomics link to health/disease, Non-invasive Prenatal testing (NIPT), Cancer and Rare Disease genetics as well as Data Analysis and Storage and many more emerging research applications as well as their translation into their clinic. We will also add any other topics of interest from the Techgene themes.
NETWORKING: in addition to the scientific program, Genomic Medicine 2018 Nijmegen will allow delegates to interact with each other during specific networking events. In addition to the excellent science showcased at our events the networking events acts as a signature to our events because delegates get the opportunity to meet other scientists and attendees to the conference. Delegates always get the chance to leave the meeting with new contacts and friendships.
These networking opportunities include:
Introductory networking session on Day 1
Panel debate (led by Prof Han Brunner)
Complimentary Drinks Reception pending sponsorship
Networking dinner on the evening of 10th October
ACADEMIC POSTER SUBMISSIONS: We welcome academic poster presentation at our events. If you have some material to present, please send us an abstract by 31st August. This will be reviewed by our scientific committee and if approved it will be displayed during the conference.
If you would like to submit a poster, please send us an abstract using our CONTACT US FORM
