Building off the success of last year’s virtual Pharmacogenomics Global Research Network (PGRN) meeting, we will be hosting our second annual ASHG-PGRN Symposium on October 18, 2021. The theme for this meeting is “Advancements in Global Pharmacogenomics through Collaboration”. This reflects the exciting prospects of our growing society as we come together to form global and inter-disciplinary partnerships. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to showcase your work at this meeting and network with fellow PGx enthusiasts! The abstract submission deadline in 2 August.
The meeting will begin with an industry session focusing on advancing PGx discovery through industry-academic partnership, which will feature presentations and panel discussions from Regeneron, PacBio, 23andMe and LabCorp, among others.
Next there will be a session on global precision medicine initiatives, including presentations from the International HundredK+ Cohorts Consortium (IHCC), SG100K, Human Heredity and Health in Africa (H3A) and All of Us Research Program. This session will highlight the current research infrastructure and capabilities that are available around the globe, with a specific focus on minority populations.
These sessions will be followed by virtual poster sessions, covering all aspects of pharmacogenomics from discovery to clinical implementation, from presenters across the globe.
Finally, we will end the meeting with a Social Hour, in which trainee award winners will be announced, and we will enjoy a fun networking activities. I am looking forward to seeing all of you at our PGRN society meeting!
The deadline for abstract submission is: 02 August 2021
