Late-Breaking Abstract Submission


ASHG 2022 late breaking abstracts were due September 13. Thank you to all who submitted an abstract!

Members and nonmembers are encouraged to submit their late-breaking research for programming in a special plenary session at the ASHG 2022 Annual Meeting. We will only be accepting 3 abstracts, and abstracts not chosen as a plenary presentation will not be programmed. As a member benefit, there is no cost to submit. Late breaking plenary slots are prioritized for abstracts presenting exciting, mature work. Findings should be novel and represent a significant advance in the field.
