Welcome 2017-09-07T13:21:56+00:00

Dear Colleagues and Friends,

On behalf of the board of the European Society of Human Genetics, I would like to cordially invite you to attend the European Human Genetics Conference 2018, from June 16-19, in Milan, Italy.

The ESHG is pleased to return to Milan and looks forward to the familiarity of old friends and places as well as to meeting new colleagues and making new collaborations.

The excellent programme committee will be selecting the best speakers and presentations which together with other highlights will ensure that the 2018 conference will continue to build on the success of the 50th anniversary conference. The ESHG will be taking the first step for (hopefully) the next 50 years and delivering a conference showcasing the latest findings in the field of human genetics, both basic and applied. The conference is held in conjunction with the European Meeting on the Psychosocial Aspects of Genetics, emphasising the multidisciplinary and international remit of the Society.

Milan, known as the industrial capital of Italy, also treasures a notable artistic as well as scientific tradition. Just think of Leonardo da Vinci, the visionary genius, author of the Codex Atlanticus and of the Last Supper, that you will be able to admire in the Biblioteca Ambrosiana  and in the Refectory of S. Maria delle Grazie, respectively. In that tradition, Milan is today the place of many universities as well as a host of research institutes, providing the right climate for an international scientific meeting, such as the ESHG Conference.

We are very much looking forward to an exciting and inspirational meeting and to seeing you in Milan in 2018.
