Dear Colleagues,
Dear Friends,

I am honored to invite you to the 54th annual European Human Genetics Conference that will be
organized for the second time as a virtual conference Saturday, August 28 to Tuesday, August 31, 2021.

The ESHG Conference has two main scopes: to provide a platform for the dissemination of the most exciting advancements in the field of human genetics and to foster the education of the upcoming generation of human geneticists. Plenary, concurrent and educational sessions, concurrent symposia, workshops and poster viewing fill in an exciting program. The Scientific Program Committee (SPC) defines the topics, with the goal to update the audience on emerging concepts, mechanisms, and technologies in human genetics, providing at the same time a broad view on the progress made in the different areas of our discipline. Invited talks are given by world class speakers and best abstracts, many of which submitted by young doctors and scientists, are selected by the SPC for oral presentations. The meeting will also allow to make direct contacts between scientists and exhibitors, who will present their new product portfolio, with practical demonstrations, to help you in your clinical or experimental work.

In summary, the ESHG meeting is the place to be for those who work in the field of human genetics and for the many followers that this discipline has attracted among life and clinical scientists.

We hope to see numerous!
