2021 Human Genetics Society of Australasia Annual Scientific Meeting

Blueprint Genetics will be attending the 44th Annual Human Genetics Society of Australasia (HGSA) Annual Scientific Meeting to be held in Adelaide, SA, Australia on 14-17 August 2021.

In response to the Covid-19 pandemic, HGSA made the decision for the HGSA 44th Annual Scientific Meeting to be held as a Virtual Meeting (with 1-day SA Hub) from the 14-17 August 2021.  This year’s theme for the conference is “From Promise to Precision: Beyond a 2020 Vision” will emphasize recent developments in genetics and genomics, encompassing improved diagnostic precision coupled with the realistic promise of targeted therapies, and preparing the genetic healthcare workforce to meet these challenges.

The program will cover various aspects of human genetics and genomics, with the committee planning sessions around the following themes:

  • Precision Medicine
  • Ophthalmic Genetics
  • An Adaptable Genetic Workforce
  • Cancer: Personalized Therapies and Counseling
  • Gene Discovery and Modeling
  • Polygenic Risk and Non-Mendelian Disorders
