The 10th Conference on Human and Medical Genetics was held from January 21 to 24 in Tours, France. The congress takes place every two years and brings together all those involved in human genetics.
Recent years have been marked by a great acceleration in knowledge and many technological advances in human genetics. This congress has enabled hundreds of medical geneticists and scientists to share innovations and practices. It is also an opportunity to communicate on major research themes and to share the results of scientific work.
It is in this context that Dr Guillaume Jouret, doctor specialized in clinical genetics at the LNS National Center of Genetics, presented the latest results of the collaborative study that his team conducted with twelve other genetics teams and which made it possible to identify and begin to understand a new orphan disease, and to participate in the elucidation of certain mechanisms associated with the growth of the head in humans. This sharing of knowledge allowed our collegue to meet many future collaborators, to make our National Center of Genetics and the LNS better known, and to envisage new scientific collaborations within an international network.
