Dubai to host Human Genome Meeting 2011

Dubai to host Human Genome Meeting 2011

Team Dubai joins forces to win bid for large-scale conference


The Centre for Arab Genomic Studies (CAGS) has announced that Dubai will host the prestigious Human Genome Meeting (HGM) in 2011, organised by the Human Genome Organisation.


Dubai won the bid to host the conference following a presentation by a team consisting of members of CAGS, Dubai World Trade Centre (DWTC), and the Dubai Convention Bureau (DCB). The event will be held at the Dubai World Trade Centre. This will be the first time that the HGM will be held in an Arab country.


The Human Genome Meeting is a series of annual conferences organised by the Human Genome Organisation (HUGO) with an aim to update and increase knowledge in the ever-evolving field of human genome research.


Jerad Bachar, director of Dubai Convention Bureau, said that the 2011 Human Genome Congress was a major achievement for Dubai. “To have the leaders from all aspects of genetic sciences in Dubai is a great honour. This goal has been obtained through continuing partnership and collaboration with The Centre for Arab Genomic Studies and the Dubai World Trade Centre. We look forward to a successful endeavour for this congress.”


In addition to the HGM, Human Genome Organisation (HUGO) has further plans to collaborate with CAGS. According to Dr. Ghazi Tadmouri, assistant director, CAGS, plans are in place to hold the third Pan Arab Human Genetics Conference in Dubai in late 2009.


“The conference will be concurrently held with a HUGO symposium on genomics and hereditable disorders, which would also involve international organisations, including the World Health Organisation,” said Dr Tadmouri.
