About: 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.

About: The French Foundation for rare diseases (Fondation maladies rares) is a unique cooperative framework dedicated to rare diseases research. Co-founded by French University Hospitals, Universities, Research organisations and Patients’ organizations, it acts as a strategic hub to coordinate, federate and fund rare diseases research, essentially at the French national level. Its support spans from basic, translational and clinical sciences to social and human research towards effective health care for patients affected by rare diseases. In accordance with current health rules, we have chosen to maintain our annual scientific conference initially planned at the Collège de France in the form of a virtual conference, with an adapted program.
