Welcome to Precision Medicine and Functional Genomics (PMFG 2021)! The flagship Precision Medicine Conference of Qatar.

This is an international forum that has been running for six years bringing together nationally and internationally recognized researchers, healthcare professionals, policymakers, and community members to explore the latest developments and innovations in biomedical research and how they translate into precision medicine solutions. This year’s program will be focused around four themes:

  • Future of pediatric genomic medicine
  • Large Scale Genomes and Data: From Discovery to Health
  • Precision care in maternal and child health
  • Advances in innovative therapies for precision medicine 

Due to Covid restrictions, this year’s conference will be held virtually. Nevertheless, it will bring the same high quality of actively engaged clinical and scientific expertise in a single place to help fuel Precision Medicine in the country and the region.
