At AACGS 2018, we will update and inform you on the latest developments in genomic medicine. We bring together respected local and international speakers to share perspectives, case experiences and to investigate the latest strategies for integrating clinical genomics into daily practice.

We look forward to seeing you at the Australian Annual Clinical Genomics Symposium in Brisbane.
