Joint Meeting 

7 & 8 March 2022

The Online Edition

"Next Generation Genetics"


Prize winners

Update 20 January 2022

The 8th Joint Dutch/UK Clinical Genetics Societies and Cancer Genetics Groups meeting is being held on 7th - 8th March 2022. Unfortunately, due to current COVID-restrictions in both UK and the Netherlands the committee has been forced to convert this meeting to a fully-online format and the venue at Rotterdam is now cancelled. We regret making this decision but feel that currently there is no other option.

The joint scientific committee has put together a wonderful scientific program titled “Next Generation Genetics”, which aims to cover as much as possible of the whole field of future clinical genetics. Talks from trainees, selected from submitted abstracts, will be included in the final programme. In addition, the Carter lecture, the Martijn Breuning Lecture, Robin Winter prize, the Ben ter Haar prize and lectures from expert-speakers will also be part of the programme. We are sure that the meeting will still be a success and are looking forward to it.

Similar to the previous joint meetings there will also be a Dysmorphology Meeting, this time hosted by Wendy Jones, Emma Wakeling and Arjan Bouman. This meeting will take place on Wednesday the 9th of March. In addition we are very pleased to announce that for the first time in the history of our meeting a cancer genetics case day will take place (also on the 9th of March). During this meeting the genetic  centres from both the UK and the Netherlands will be able to present their most interesting / challenging cases from the field of cancer genetics. This meeting will be hosted by Maartje Nielsen and Anja Wagner.

We are very much looking forward to this meeting!
