Upcoming Event: Accelerating Pediatric Genomics Research through Collaboration

The NIH INvestigation of Co-occurring conditions across the Lifespan to Understand Down syndromE (INCLUDE) and Gabriella Miller Kids First Pediatric Research Program (Kids First) are hosting an ancillary poster session at the 2022 American Society of Human Genetics (ASHG) Annual Meeting in Los Angeles, CA on Tuesday, October 25 from 6:00pm-9:00pm at the JW Marriott Hotel.

The Kids First and INCLUDE programs are excited to host our first joint poster session at the ASHG Annual Meeting 2022. The goal of this poster session is to bring current Kids First and INCLUDE researchers together with a growing community of potential collaborators to foster collaboration and accelerate genetic discovery of childhood cancer, structural birth defects and Down syndrome co-occurring conditions.

During this session, attendees will learn about Kids First childhood cancer, structural birth defects and INCLUDE Down syndrome whole genome datasets, progress of Kids First X01 cohort projects and INCLUDE cohort projects, tools and functionalities of the Kids First Data Resource Portal and INCLUDE Data Hub, and collaborations that can amplify the impact of Kids First and INCLUDE research efforts. The poster session is open to public and attendees are not required to register for the main ASHG meeting to attend the poster session.

Register to attend

In addition, we encourage ASHG attendees to visit the Gabriella Miller Kids First Data Resource Center (DRC) at booth #845 and INCLUDE Data Coordinating Center (DCC) at booth #847 to learn about the datasets available through the Kids First Data Resource Portal and INCLUDE Data Hub and how these programs support the goal of uncovering new insights into the biology of childhood cancer, structural birth defects and down syndrome.
