The Global Alliance for Genomics and Health 4th Plenary Meeting
The 4th Plenary Meeting of the Global Alliance for Genomics and Health will bring together our worldwide individual and organizational membership. The focus of the Plenary will be on facilitating rapid uptake of GA4GH tools and solutions in real-world settings – translating the last two years of work into action! The Plenary will also provide an opportunity to highlight progress made on our key projects, provide updates on the GA4GH as an organization, and obtain input on our future goals and next steps. We look forward to an engaging and inspiring global dialogue!
