Istanbul Symposium-Genomics in Reproductive Medicine November 16, 2013
 
ACIBADEM UNIVERSITESI, Istanbul, Turkey Istanbul 

Symposium-Genomics application on Clinics will be held on 16th of November 2013, ACIBADEM UNIVERSITESI, Istanbul, Turkey. The main topics will focus on Genetic Testing and Diagnosis (Exome diagnosis, Monogenic Diseases, Personalized Medicine), Reproductive Genetics Testing (IVF and PGD/PGS, NIPT and NIFTY) 

We expect to have around 200 high ranked participants who are the top researchers from leading European research centers, universities as well as clinical and diagnose fields. The aim of the conference is to share experiences of how to bring ideas from genomics research institutes into clinic application, and we believe that you vast experience and foresight will contribute a lot to the symposium. We look forward to seeing you in Istanbul.
