Welcome from the President

Dear colleagues and friends,

The Department of Medical Genetics of the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens,
School of Medicine and the Hellenic Society of Medical Genetics would like to welcome you to
the Symposium in Clinical Genetics and Genomics with International speakers from the USA,
Europe and Greece. The Symposium will take place on the 1st and 2nd June 2018, in Aegli
Zappiou, Athens (Greece) entitled: “Shaping the Future of Clinical Genetics through Innovative
Technologies”.
The aims and objectives of the ERASMUS+project’s (NGENES) as well as the intellectual outputs
during the Symposium are going to be presented in order to gain the maximum benefits of the
project. The goal is to achieve a high rate of participation to maximize the dissemination impact
and to acquire knowledge on the innovative outcomes. The exchange of knowledge and the
discussion on the findings are going to be taken into account for the evaluation process.
The 2018 Symposium sessions will explore the following topics:
• Neuromuscular Genomics
• Cancer Genomics
• Genetics of Skeletal Dysplasias
• Genetics of Renal Diseases
• Neurodevelopmental Genomics
• Mitochondrial Disorders and Metabolic Disorders
• Prenatal Diagnosis
The aim and expectations of this Symposium is to bring together Medical and Clinical Scientists,
Researchers, Molecular Biologists, other Health Care Professionals and Industry. Also,
empowering clinicians with the information they require to intergrate genomics into medical
practice. It will provide a unique opportunity for sharing scientific knowledge in the evolving
field of Precision Medicine / New Clinical Genomics and facilitate networking collaborations.
My sincere thanks for your support in this very significant effort at the time of the official
recognition of the specialty of Medical Genetics and Laboratory Genetics in Greece.
