Dear colleagues,

We are pleased to invite you to the ESHG Pharmacogenetics Course. The event will take place in Portorož, Slovenia, from September 22nd to September 24th 2022 at Grand Hotel Bernardin.

This course aims at delivering up-to-date knowledge on pharmacogenetics to clinicians, pharmacists, clinical pharmacologists, genetic counsellors, clinical and molecular geneticists in training or certified as well as PhD students and researchers.

The program will include invited lectures that will give the introduction to the field as well as present the latest breakthrough research, tutorials, discussions as well as short oral and poster presentations. The program is designed to facilitate productive discussions with experts in the field and provides ample opportunities for the participants to present and discuss their work.

The faculty combines experts from many fields of pharmacogenetics known for their teaching skills. Participants are encouraged to submit an abstract for on-site presentation of a clinical or genetic case in a poster format or as short presentation.

The course is organized by the Pharmacogenetics laboratory, Institute of Biochemistry and Molecular Genetics, Faculty of Medicine, University of Ljubljana as a collaborative action with the European Society of Human Genetics (ESHG). A limited number of ESHG fellowhips is available to support the attendance of students, postdoctoral researchers, and residents in training.

The course is also endorsed and supported by the HORIZON-WIDERA-action: PharmGenHUB (GA No. 101059870) and H2020 MSC ITN-action: TranSYS (GA No. 860895).
