About AMDP-2022

SciGenom Research Foundation (SGRF), a not-for-profit organisation, is working to promote Science in India through research and education. We have ongoing research activities spanning Agriculture, Animal health, Biodiversity, Genomics and Human Health. In addition to research activities, through our education arm SGRF Conferences, we have conducted several educational workshops and international conferences to promote science in India.

Looking at the rapid progress made in the field of molecular diagnostics and precision medicine, we are organising an international conference primarily focussing on these 2 areas. This event can become a great platform for researchers, clinicians, innovators, industries to gather, discuss, network, and eventually contribute to the progress and knowledge strengthening the pillars of modern medicine. Centre for Biotechnology, Anna University, Chennai will be our partner in organising this conference. The conference will be held at Vivekananda Auditorium on 15, 16 and 17 September 2022 and expected participants number is 900-1000. The event will include Plenary lectures, Invited talks, Poster presentations for students, Networking sessions and several other scientific programs.
