The 19th International Gene Forum 2019

August 30-31, 2019 in Tartu, Estonia

An annual international high-level scientific conference on genetics and genomics, the major event in the Baltics, provides an excellent opportunity to establish and renew contacts in the region.

Due to its interdisciplinary scope, Gene Forum 2019 brings together 18-19 distinguished experts from Europe and US for discussion of the progress in the field. Speakers will discuss wide range of topics from latest advances in genomics and personalized medicine to clinical pharmacology and epigenetics. Special sessions will incorporate topics like gut microbiome role in health and disease prevention, latest advances in drug discovery and cancer therapy, as well as functional genomics as path towards precision medicine and population genetics.

The conference incorporates also an exhibition aimed at the biotechnology related companies.

As the organizers, we hope that the forthcoming Gene Forum will create an inspiring environment to exchange ideas and experiences. The conference will take place in Tartu, the second biggest city of Estonia, rich in academic and historical traditions. We hope that your stay in Tartu will be both enjoyable and professionally stimulating.
