The BSGM annual meeting (UK Clinical Genomics 2021) will be held jointly with the ACGS on Tuesday 19th - Wednesday 20th January 2021, as a celebration of UK Clinical Genomics.
The event will be held virtually and “live from your living room” via Zoom. Registration for the meeting will be free for BSGM members (non-members are welcome to submit an abstract and then register for the event for a nominal fee once the abstract deadline has passed).
Confirmed speakers include Chris Wigley, CEO at Genomics England, and Professor Mary-Claire King will be giving “The Fisher Memorial Lecture”.
We would like to invite you to submit an abstract. These sessions will be broadly divided into Service and Research. To ensure we can include as many high-quality presentations as possible, in addition to the 15 minute standard presentations, we will also be offering 5 minute lightning presentations consisting of 3 slides. These lightning presentations are ideally suited where there are results of high quality but of insufficient quantity for a 15-minute presentation. Please do consider this if you have some great results that are not quite there yet for a full presentation. Unfortunately, we are not able to accommodate poster presentations.
We are particularly interested to receive abstracts from young investigators, STPs in genomic science, bioinformatics and cancer genomics, genetic counsellor and clinical genetics trainees. The BSGM will award prizes for outstanding abstracts from trainees and young investigators. All trainees and young investigators who have applied during the abstract submission are nominees for the awards. Each nominee must be first author (i.e. presenting author) of the submitted abstract and should not be more than four years post-doctoral.
