News and Events
This year, AACGS has been organised by the Garvan Institute of Medical Research, Australian Genomics and Queensland Genomics Health Alliance.
As part of our ongoing commitment to decrease the gap between genomic research and the clinic, we invite you to attend this symposium that will highlight best practice and challenges facing the implementation of genomics in clinical practice.
At AACGS 2018, we will update you on the latest developments in genomic medicine. The event brings together respected local and international speakers to share perspectives, case experiences and to investigate the latest strategies for integrating clinical genomics into daily practice.
