Invitation

Center for Genetic Studies & Research and Institute for Reproductive Medicine & Women’s Health, The Madras Medical Mission in association with CSIR - Institute of Genomics and Integrative Biology welcomes you to participate in the 4th Annual Conference of 3MGM2019 on “Genetic and Genomic Medicine in Maternal and Fetal Care” followed by two workshops on “Prenatal Interphase Fluorescence in situ Hybridisation” and “Exome Sequence Analysis and Interpretation” which will be held from 13th to 15th September 2019.

The objective of this combined conference and workshop is to expand education and research in the field of fetal medicine and facilitate rapid translation of research findings into clinical application through the exchange of knowledge between expert clinicians and scientists. This event will provide valuable insight into the recent developments in genetics and genomics with its application in fetal medicine. To fulfil the above objective, we have gathered eminent and renowned speakers from all over India to present the latest advances.

The Center for Genetic Studies and Research, which was established in 2011, has been involved in genetic research, diagnostics, counselling, and teaching and provides on-the-job training and observership to students in science and medicine.

The Institute of Reproductive Medicine and Women’s Health have consistently maintained high clinical and academic standards. This is a post-graduate teaching center with on-going training programs in Reproductive Medicine and embryology.

Institute of Genomics and Integrative Biology is a premier institute of Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) devoted to biological research with a focus on genomics and molecular medicine, engaged in research of national importance.

We are very much looking forward to an exciting and inspirational meeting and to see you in Chennai during September, 2019
