On behalf of the local organizing committee and HUGO, it is our great pleasure to invite you to the Human Genome Meeting 2023 on May 4th to 6th, 2023 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. This is the first HGM in Latin America.
The theme of the HGM2023 – “The Human Genomes Project: bringing all the genomes and all the benefits of genomics to humanity” reflects the focus on genomics education which will be heavily involved in the scientific contents of the conference. HGM2023 will be a platform to highlight recent progresses in these fascinating new science and technologies. In addition, HGM2023 will bring in educational workshops and sessions for students and early-career scientists, combined with opportunities to present their works.
Rio de Janeiro is one of the most visited cities in the southern hemisphere and is well known for its excellent atmosphere, panoramic surroundings, and beautiful beaches. The giant "Christ the Redeemer" statue at the top of Corcovado Mountain is one of the "New Seven Wonders of the World". Rio de Janeiro never fails to impress you with its modern outlook that reflects its progression. We welcome you to experience one of the most lively and attractive cities in Latin America and enjoy rich attractions, night life and gastronomy.
HGM 2023 will bring together renowned geneticists, clinicians, and doctors along with promising early-career professionals. We will have prominent keynote lectures, scientific sessions addressing recent advances in genomics, and fruitful discussions to promote exchange of data and ideas. Drawing on a truly broad-reaching and international line up of experts, HGM2023 promises to be both a dynamic forum for scientific exchange and a unique opportunity to bring together global expertise all focused on the subject of “The Human Genomes Project: bringing all the genomes and all the benefits of genomics to humanity”.
