• The Southern African Society for Human Genetics (SASHG) is a non-profit organisation for health care professionals involved and interested in human or medical genetics.

    Who we areMembership

The Southern African Society of Human genetics is calling on young researchers to submit abstracts for our Young Researchers Online Symposium. We are preparing an online series of talks to highlight students and early career researchers. We want to create opportunities for feedback, networking, and community-building. The International Congress of Human Genetics is in Cape Town in 2022, so this is a good opportunity to gain insights into your work before the big event.
