On behalf of the local organising committee and HUGO, it is our great pleasure to invite you to partner with us for the 24th Annual Human Genome Meeting.

The human genome meeting is an international meeting with a long history and broad audience of researchers and clinicians applying leading edge genomic technologies to study the human genome and diagnose and treat disease.

The 2020 meeting is broadly spread across three themed days covering genome function, genome variation and clinical application. We have secured high profile international and national speakers across each of these themes.

Australia’s sunniest capital city, Perth effortlessly blends urban cool with raw natural beauty. Its heart is bustling with new bars, restaurants, shopping and cultural spaces, and is also home to Kings Park - one of the world’s largest inner city parks. Just a short drive away are the beautiful wineries of the Swan Valley and a string of stunning beaches where you can watch amazing sunsets and even swim with wild dolphins. Little wonder The New York Times declared Perth a 'hipster haven'.

Perth is only two flights away from major destinations such as Europe, the United Kingdom and the USA. Perth is the only Australian city offering a daily direct flight to London. There are also direct flights from New Zealand and from most major cities in Asia.
