Strong presence at international conferences
September 2, 2019
Melbourne Genomics continues to expand our global influence and leadership, with multiple presentations at national and international conferences in recent weeks.
More than 18 Melbourne Genomics staff and Alliance members delivered presentations and posters at seven international and three national conferences. This included two specially invited presentations at two meetings.
Meanwhile, Melbourne Genomics hosted the Genetics in Neurodegenerative Disorders Symposium featuring Expert-in-Residence, Professor Glenda Halliday (University of Sydney), delivering the opening plenary.
Presentations were delivered by Melbourne Genomics Alliance members at the following conferences: HIMSS Europe, ESHG, ASMicrobe, and HGSA (which included 15 Melbourne Genomics-associated oral presentations).
Congratulations to all those who presented, including Amy Nisselle and Belinda Dawson who were awarded Best Presentation at HGSA for their workforce education initiatives with our sister organisation, Australian Genomics.
In related news: Melbourne Genomics’ shared clinical system for genomics, GenoVic, was shortlisted for the 2019 HISA Enterprise Achievement Award. (Congrats to everyone involved!)
