Clinical Genetics & Human Genome Variation

  July 07, 2008  

Human Genome Variation Society, Philadelphia, PA
Tuesday 11th November 2008

 A Satellite meeting to the American Society of Human Genetics Annual Meeting

The remarkable progress in the basic science and technology of genetics over the last decade is rapidly being translated into the clinic.  The promise of “individualized genetic medicine” based on an understanding of inter-individual human genetic variation has attracted both popular and scientific attention.  The genetic community faces challenges in scientific discovery, in applying discoveries to clinical disorders, and in making these advances comprehensible to physicians and patients.  This HGVS special session will feature speakers who are at the forefront of each of these areas.  We will explore the science of genetic variation and cancer, genetic variation and non-malignant diseases, and the presentation of information on genetic variation to physicians and to the public. 



The Human Genome Variation Society invites submissions of abstracts for the Symposium on Clinical Genetics & Human Genome Variation. There will be two classes of abstracts, those for Clinical Genetics & Human Genome Variation and those on general human genome variation. You are welcome to attend the meeting without submitting an abstract. Only those registering are able to submit abstracts. Preference will be given to Clinical Genetics & Human Genome Variation abstracts.
