The American Society of Human Genetics (ASHG), founded in 1948, is the primary professional membership organization for human genetics specialists worldwide. The Society's nearly 8,000 members include researchers, academicians, clinicians, laboratory practice professionals, genetic counselors, nurses, and others who have a special interest in the field of human genetics.

We are pleased to announce the introduction of two new ASHG member categories:

  • ASHG-European Society of Human Genetics (ESHG) joint trainee membership: Enjoy the expanded networking, career opportunities, discounts, and other benefits of belonging to two international societies dedicated to human genetics.  
  • Early-Career Membership: Early-career genetics professionals who have completed training within the last three years are eligible for a three-year, early-career membership for $190 (the price of a one-year regular membership).
