Complimentary press registration now open for ACMG 2014 Annual Clinical Genetics Meeting
Date:1/22/2014

Do you cover genetics, genomics, healthcare or medicine? The media are invited to register now for the American College of Medical Genetics and Genomics Annual Clinical Genetics Meeting, March 25-29, 2014 at the Nashville Convention Center.

From Incidental Findings to Whole Genome/Exome Sequencing to Cancer Genetics, the focus of the ACMG Meeting is on the actual practice of genetics and genomics in healthcare, showcasing the latest breakthroughs in genetics research and its practical applications to medical practice. The ACMG Annual Meeting attracts medical and scientific leaders from around the world working to apply research in the human genome to the diagnosis, management, treatment and prevention of genetic conditions and rare and common diseases.

Reporters will hear about the latest medical genetics research; have the opportunity to interact with doctors, laboratory professionals and genetic counselors about what is happening right now in genetics and genomics; and view the latest products available in the extensive exhibit hall.

Topics range from common conditions to rare diseases. Sessions include information of interest to the general public, to health professionals and to the industry/trade.

The ACMG Meeting is the genetics meeting most focused on the practical applications of genetic discoveries in the clinical setting. And the 2014 Meeting is already shattering records with a record number of abstracts submitted and attendee registration to date is at an all-time high.
