Event Overview
Welcome message:

Dear Colleagues,

The City of Glasgow, Scotland warmly invites you to attend the XXVI World Congress of Psychiatric Genetics. October 11 – 15, 2018

As the field of Psychiatric Genetics enjoys a period of rapid discovery, clinical psychiatry is moving toward a future where basic science discoveries are translated into genuine improvements in person-centred care. The 2018 WCPG ‘Bench, Brain, and Bedside’ will feature a wide-ranging programme of speakers and sessions that will appeal to scientists and clinicians alike, while also engaging with the public.

The world-class SEC Centre conference facilities and nearby hotel accommodation are centrally located in Scotland’s largest and most vibrant city. Glasgow remains firmly European in outlook, and is easily accessible from all UK and International travel hubs. Aside from the science, the beautiful capital City of Edinburgh is located just 50 minutes away, and journeying North will take you into the heart of the Highlands and Islands.

We, along with our Local Organizing Committee and International Program Committee members, look forward to welcoming you all to the Congress and sharing the excitement of your discoveries.
