We are sad that we were not able to assemble in Helsinki this spring. The meeting will be held at a similar time (May/June) next year. Specific dates will be determined after the summer. For those early birds who registered, the meeting bureau will be contacting you with the options of a full refund or leaving the (low) registration fee in place for the meeting in 2021.

The latest discovery genetics data from the Nordic countries were presented by the next wave of researchers at a full-day symposium sponsored by the Nordic Society of Human Genetics and Precision Medicine. Following a stage-setting talk by NSHG-PM President Kári Stefánsson, each of the Nordic countries presented the latest research from their laboratories in a series of short talks. We wrapped up the day with a discussion of NSHG-PM's current effort to unite research efforts across the Nordic region in order to increase the power to detect genetic variation that affects human health.
