Next BeSHG meeting: Friday, February 7th 2014, Antwerp
Translational Genetics: from cage over bench to bed
Dear members of the Belgium Society of Human Genetics,
We are delighted to invite you to attend the 14th Annual meeting of the Belgian Society of Human Genetics, which will take place in Antwerp on Friday February 7th, 2014.
The committee is creating an attractive programme focusing on Translational Genetics. The extensive programme provides a balance between opportunities for education and presentation of the latest developments in the field, both at the clinical and molecular level.
Presentations by young investigators are another highlight of the day! The abstract submission dead-line is December 24. As usual, ten abstracts submitted by young investigators (first author) will be selected for oral presentation. We are delighted to announce that this year the BeSHG board decided to reward the 2 best oral presentations by offering an iPad. The best poster presentation will be rewarded with an invitation for the 2014 ESHG meeting.
A limited number of abstracts will be selected for platform presentation. The meeting also includes a poster session. Young scientists with the best oral presentation and best poster presentation will be rewarded. Our objective is to provide a forum, in which numerous specialities, including nurses, genetic counsellors, clinical geneticists, and molecular biologists involved in human genetics can interact and debate.
We look forward to your participation and hope you enjoy the meeting in Brussels with us.
Do not delay in registering at this promising meeting. Registration for memberships and for the meeting should be done via the website.
