The European Society of Human Genetics (ESHG) 2016 conference took place May 21 – 24 in Barcelona, Spain, and brought together Illumina customers who are using our technology to advance research and human health. These customer collaborations stem from leading academic institutions, government, pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies around the globe, and are crucial to advancing our understanding of genetics and health.
ESHG is a non-profit organization that promotes human genetics research, ensures high standards and facilitates contacts between research practitioners working in Europe. The Society encourages research integration and clinical translation, as well as professional and public education in all areas of human genetics. We caught up with some of our customers at this year’s conference to hear how Illumina is helping to enable their work.
