|Dear Colleagues and Friends,|
It was 1997 in Genoa the last time when the European Society of Human Genetics met in Italy, so it was time to be back. On behalf of the Italian Society of Human Genetics (SIGU). I am honored to invite you to attend the European Human Genetic Conference 2014 that will be held in Milan May 31 - June 3, 2014.
Milan, known as the industrial capital of Italy, also treasures a notable artistic as well as scientific tradition. Just think of Leonardo da Vinci, the visionary genius, author of the Codex Atlanticus and of the Last Supper, that you will be able to admire in the Biblioteca Ambrosiana and in the Refectory of S. Maria delle Grazie, respectively. In that tradition, Milan is today the place of many Universities as well as a host of research institutes, providing the right climate for an international scientific meeting, such as the ESHG Conference.
Likewise, the Italian Society of Human Genetics will contribute to the success of the Conference with a large participation of its members and with all possible measures of support.
Human genetics continues to progress at an unprecedented pace and every annual meeting promises to bring new data to the attention of the scientific community, fostering productive debates and further progress. In this respect, the Milan Conference will not differ from previous ones. Therefore, I expect a numerous and enthusiastic participation. I can promise that your visit will be a memorable one.
Arrivederci a Milano in 2014!
President, Societa Italiana di Genetica Umana and Local Host of the ESHG 2014
