It gives us great pleasure to invite you to the Sixth Annual National Conference of the Society for Indian Academy of Medical Genetics (SIAMGCON 2019) and the Indo-US Symposium on Genetic Neuromuscular Disorders, being held in Hyderabad in November 2019. The chief focus of the conference would be on translational research in the area of genetic neuromuscular disorders. Various aspects related to this theme ranging from the molecular basis, clinical evaluation, molecular diagnosis, management, physical rehabilitation and genetic counseling to ongoing preclinical studies, clinical trials and emerging therapeutic modalities including CRISPR- Cas9 and other gene editing technologies, would be discussed by eminent national and international experts. The scientific deliberations over the course of three days of the symposium are planned to cater to the clinical and research interests of medical practitioners as well as scientists working in the area of genetic neuromuscular disorders.

The post-conference workshop on interpretation of genetic tests in the clinical setting is targeted to help clinicians from all specialties and super specialties understand the nuances of conventional as well as recently developed genetic diagnostic tests and their utility in the clinic.
