Dear colleagues, dear friends,
On behalf of the Organizing Committee and the Bulgarian Society of Human Genetics and Genomics, I am honored to cordially invite you to the 12th Balkan Congress of Human Genetics, on September 8-10, in Plovdiv, Bulgaria.
We would love you to join us in Plovdiv, one of the cities with richest history in Europe. Plovdiv is located in the heart of Bulgaria and is well known for its Roman theater and picturesque old town with narrow cobblestone streets and historical architecture that will send you back in time! You will be able to experience rich culture, traditional arts and world renowned cuisine and wines. The city is also hosting an International Technical Fair known for the presentation of innovations and new technologies, which is why it is considered the largest technology meeting in the Balkans.
Plovdiv is a place, where history, culture and tradition meet science, technology and innovation. This makes it a perfect home for the 12th Balkan Congress of Human Genetics. The event will present the newest achievements in the field of dysmorphology genetics, neurogenetics, reproductive genetics, prenatal genetics, cancer genetics and precision medicine. Highlights also include the current developments in omics technologies and bioinformatics and their application in everyday medicine. We welcome you to share your outstanding research, new ideas and scientific experience!
We hope to make together the 12th Balkan Congress of Human Genetics a highly inspirational meeting that should not be missed.
See you in September in Plovdiv!
Corr. mem. Prof. Draga Toncheva, MD, PhD, DSc
The beautiful city of Plovdiv traditionally hosts Bulgaria’s National Conference for Rare Diseases and Orphan Drugs in September. This year we are pleased to invite you to two events. 8th National Conference for Rare Diseases and Orphan Drugs will be jointly held with the 12th Balkan Congress of Human Genetics on September 8-10, 2017 at the Congress Centre of Grand Hotel Plovdiv.
2017 is a year of new horizons for rare diseases. 24 reference networks for rare and complex diseases are now officially operating within the European Union. These are new opportunities for improved diagnosis, treatment and follow up of patients with rare diseases. These are new prospects for integrative approach and international cooperation in Bulgaria, the Balkans and Europe.
8th National Conference for Rare Diseases and Orphan Drugs and 12th Balkan Congress of Human Genetics will present innovations and trends in personalized and genomic medicine. This joint event is an excellent occasion for new, expanded contacts at regional and European level.
We kindly invite you to the 8th National Conference on Rare Diseases and Orphan Drugs and 12th Balkan Congress of Human Genetics. We welcome you to Plovdiv!
