Join up to 8,500 attendees from 80 countries at the world’s largest gathering of human genetics and genomics professionals.

COVID-19 and the ASHG Annual Meeting

The American Society of Human Genetics’ first priority is the health, safety and well-being of everyone involved with the ASHG 2020 Annual Meeting. We are monitoring the situation closely, including guidance from the U.S. Department of State and U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and local California and San Diego health authorities. ASHG is committed to hosting a vibrant 2020 Annual Meeting – whether in person in San Diego or virtually – and just like every year, we encourage your science and lab to be at this crucial event for the genetics and genomics community. Please find an update on ASHG’s Annual Meeting from ASHG’s President Anthony Wynshaw-Boris here. Be assured that, should the situation change, we will keep our community informed. Please email if you have any questions.


Did you know that becoming a member of ASHG not only pays for itself in discounted meeting registration, but opens you to special member-only events, access to The American Journal of Human Genetics, and representation in the world’s largest human genetics and genomics community? Your membership supports advocacy efforts and educational programs, and connects you to colleagues globally.
