43rd Human Genetics Society of Australasia (HGSA) Annual Scientific Meeting


* Call for Abstracts - Now Open *


On behalf of the Local Organising Committee, we invite you to the 43rd Human Genetics Society of Australasia (HGSA) Annual Scientific Meeting, to be held from 3-6 August 2019 at the Michael Fowler Centre in Wellington, New Zealand.

The theme for the conference is “Winds of Change” to convey the importance of new developments in genetics and genomics (including therapeutics), cancer genetics and engaging with the broader community, in particular indigenous populations. We are attempting to make this conference as sustainable as possible by choosing eco-friendly options wherever possible.

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

  • New developments in genomic medicine

  • Translation, discoveries and therapies

  • Ethics

  • Engagement with indigenous communities

  • Cancer genetics

Leading international and local luminaries will be presenting over the three days of the conference, as well as in the Special Interest Group (SIG) meetings which are held on the Saturday prior to the Conference.

We look forward to welcoming you to Wellington in August.
