DISCOVER • EDUCATE • ADVOCATE
The American Society of Human Genetics (ASHG), founded in 1948, is the primary
professional membership organization for human genetics specialists worldwide. ASHG
serves research scientists, health professionals, and the public by providing forums to:
Share research results at Annual Meetings and in
The American
Journal of
Human Genetics
Advance genetics research by advocating for research support
Enhance genetics education by preparing future professionals and informing
the public
Promote genetic services and support responsible social and scientific
policies
ASHG’s nearly 8,000 members include researchers, academicians, clinicians, laboratory
practice professionals, genetic counselors, nurses and others who have a special interest
in human genetics. Members of ASHG entered the 21st century with a commitment to
become fluent in the language of the genome, understand human variation, and promote
the public health. As we transfer new knowledge to the next generation of genetics
professionals and the public, we will translate new ideas into improved clinical practice.
