Indonesian Society of Human Genetics (INASHG)

Following the start of the Medical Genetics Course and Master Program, the enthusiasm and interest has increased year by year. Many Indonesian scientists are harboring their interests on human genetics, and have taken human genetics training, post-graduate, even doctoral programs from domestic and overseas centers. Therefore, it is an encouraging reason and a right time to re-establish Perhimpunan Ahli Genetika Manusia Indonesia (PAGMI)/Indonesian Society of Human Genetics (INASHG), formerly named PGMI, which will provide a scientific platform and accommodate professionals and people who are interested in human genetics in Indonesia.

Last year, along with the 14th Medical Genetics Course (MGC), The 1st INASHG Conference has been held on 26-28 November 2016 at Grasia Hotel Semarang. The event included conference, symposium, medical genetics workshop, and free paper presentation. The general theme of the conference was “Recent Developments of Human Genetics”.
