Attend the Genomic Medicine Conference March 6-8 on HudsonAlpha’s campus!

The Genomic Medicine Conference: Empowering Personal Health focuses on advancing knowledge in the field of genomic medicine in a clinical care setting. The interdisciplinary and international program is designed to educate a broad audience – including clinicians and scientists as well as members of the general public – about clinical whole genome sequencing (WGS) and how genomic medicine is increasingly being integrated into clinical care.

Join us for GeneChat, our annual social media blitz!

Celebrate DNA Day by participating in GeneChat, our annual social media blitz. DNA Day commemorates the completion of the Human Genome Project in April 2003 and the discovery of the DNA double helix in 1953. To mark this occasion, HudsonAlpha will host a virtual conversation connecting our researchers with classrooms and the public on our social media platforms. We’ll answer questions related to genetics, genomics and biotechnology and highlight careers in those fields.

April 25, 9 am to 2 pm
