8th Pan Arab Human Genetics Conference
١٧ - ٢٠ يناير ٢٠٢٠

As Chairman of the Organizing Committee, it gives me great pleasure to invite you to 8th Pan Arab Human Genetics Conference (PAHGC). Over the years, this conference has become one of the most awaited events in the calendar of human genetics in the Arab World.


The Centre for Arab Genomic Studies (CAGS) has endeavored to bring together diverse expertise and resources pertaining to the field of medical genetics in the Arab World, through the organization of the Pan Arab Human Genetic Conference, in the hopes of facilitating multidisciplinary research. These conferences successfully provide a platform for regional and international researchers and professionals in genetics to have a constructive dialogue and share their views. We continue our efforts in this direction with the 8th PAHGC.


This year, I am very pleased to let you know that the conference is being supported by the European School of Genetic Medicine (ESGM) . The School has been offering different courses in the fields of medical genetics and genomics over the past 30 years, and has tailored an intensive course on clinical genomics and next generation sequencing for the PAHGC that will run as a pre-conference workshop. We have very few seats open for this workshop, and I recommend interested delegates to register for it as soon as possible.


The scientific program of the conference, lasting over two days, will focus on the Genomics of Neurodevelopmental Disorders, Metabolic Disorders, Dysmorphology, and Population Genomics and Human Disease. International and regional experts will take to the platform to deliver their lectures on these topics. Additionally, as always, we also encourage researchers to submit their abstracts for oral or poster presentation at the conference.


We look forward to your presence and active participation at the 8th PAHGC. See you in Dubai!
