Oct 17, 2017 - Oct 21, 2017
The American Society of Human Genetics Annual Meeting

Join us at booth #631 for new products and new experiences

Whether your research aims to discover causative variants involved in inherited disease or reproductive genomics, identify novel biomarkers, better understand genotypes associated with drug response, or identify genetic risk factors for disease, we provide innovative technologies and services to help you make a difference in genetic research.

New this year: Thermo Fisher silent workshops

We are excited to bring you a new, interactive experience in our booth—Thermo Fisher silent workshops. Reserve your spot for a short 10 minute interactive and informative experience. We’ll provide you with noise-cancelling wireless headphones paired with live presentations on breakthrough technologies and research.

Spaces are limited so view our workshop program and topics below and book your place today.
