ISHG 2024 Ahmedabad
On behalf of the Organizing Committee of the ISHG 2024, we feel privileged to warmly welcome you all to the 48th Annual Meeting and International Conference of the Indian Society of Human Genetics. The conference is scheduled between the 21st and 24th of January 2024 in the vibrant, warm, and beautiful city of Ahmedabad.
This year’s conference is very special as it anthropomorphizes the core tenets of human genetics- Sarva Mangalam Bhavatu – which means peace, health, and prosperity for all. The conference has been envisioned to display the latest and cutting-edge scientific advancements in the field of clinical and basic genetics from all around the globe, with a special emphasis on treatment for rare genetic disorders. The conference will also be a forum to renew friendships, extend networks, and jointly explore current and future research directions.
We selected Ahmedabad as the venue for this conference due to its legacy in building scientific institutions with a people-centric ethical approach as one of its core tenets. The city has several historically significant institutions such as Gandhi Ashram, the Indian Space Research Organization, the Physical Research Laboratory, the Indian Institute of Management, and the National Institute of Design to name a few. The city is also recognized by UNESCO as a World Heritage City due to its rich architectural heritage, traditional houses (pols), gated traditional streets (puras), and public step wells (waav).
We heartily welcome all distinguished scientists, doctors, students, pharmaceutical manufacturers, and genomic laboratories to one of the largest scientific fests on human genetics of 2024!

I am very delighted that the Indian Society of Human Genetics (ISHG) 2024 is being hosted by the Foundation For Research In Genetics and Endocrinology (FRIGE)- Institute of Human Genetics and the Gujarat Biotech Research Centre (GBRC) in Ahmedabad, under the aegis of the Indian Society of Human Genetics. Ahmedabad has a history of excellence in scientific work- both in Physical and Life Sciences, over the last several decades. In keeping with this tradition, the organizers have put together a very stimulating scientific program encompassing advances in medical genetics and genomic technologies with experts from several countries. This meeting spanning over three and a half days promises to be an intellectual treat. With ample opportunities for interactions with our young colleagues, this will also serve as a platform for sharing ideas and enriching scientific collaborations.
