Welcome

Dear Members of the Genomics Scientific Community,

We would like to invite you to attend the Human Genome Meeting (HGM 2021) - The Next Frontiers in Genomics - which will take place at the David Intercontinental Hotel in Tel Aviv, Israel on October 4-6, 2021.

On October 3, 2021, Tel Aviv University will host a Trainee Symposium. Graduate students and post-doctoral fellows are invited to present their research. Slots at the Meeting will be saved for the best talks.

As many of you know, the original meeting was scheduled to take place in February 2021;  however, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have decided to postpone the meeting to a date we hope all of you will be able to attend. 

HGM 2021 will have, with your help, a captivating program of plenary lectures, symposia, workshops, poster presentations, lectures and social events. Our scientific program will cover a wide range of topics in human genomics to share the most up-to-date research trends, results, information and databases, which often sparks off new collaboration opportunities.

We plan to create a memorable, extraordinary conference in Tel Aviv, which is considered to be the liveliest city in the region - The City that Never Sleeps. This will be the very first time that an HGM is held in Israel and we look forward to welcome its participants to Tel Aviv for an experience of a lifetime.

Our sessions will cover the following:

  • Gene regulation, organization & long-range genomic interactions
  • The microbiome and the genome – where is the junction?
  • The biobank and impact on precision medicine
  • Human Cell Atlas - Single cell analysis
  • AI in health and medicine
  • Stem cell derived organoids to study genetic disease
  • Cell engineering & gene therapy
  • Mechanisms of ageing
  • Immunity and disease
  • Integrating metabolism and disease
  • Ancient human genomes
  • Gene-environment interactions
  • Genomic ethics
  • Genomics and the COVID-19 pandemic

We look forward to seeing you in Tel Aviv in October 2021!
