BSGM Annual Conference 2024 (in-person) – abstract submission now open

We would like to invite you to submit abstracts for the BSGM Conference 2024, taking place at the Royal College of Physicians London, on Tuesday 5th November.

This year’s focus will be on AI, the power of big data, gene therapies and recent developments in genomic medicine. Among the confirmed speakers are Prof. Dr. Stephen Gilbert (Technical University of Dresden, Germany), Dr Panicos Shangaris (King's College London, United Kingdom), and Prof Sian Ellard (University of Exeter Medical School) who will be giving the BSGM Lecture.

Please find the preliminary conference programme HERE subject to change by the SPC Committee.

All early career researchers who have applied during the abstract submission as a first and presenting author will be considered for an award.
