Dear H3Africa Consortium Members,

We are pleased to announce that registration is closed for the 12th Meeting of the H3Africa Consortium. The Meeting will be held in Rwanda, Kigali, at the Radisson Blu Hotel and Convention Centre. We are also delighted that this will be the fourth joint meeting with our founding organization the African Society of Human Genetics (AfSHG). Previous joint efforts includes: Johannesburg October 2013, Dakar May 2016 and Cairo November 2017. The AfSHG always promises an exciting engaging experience for early career and established African Scientists, so we look forward to meeting the broader scientific community in Kigali this September.

The meeting will take place over eight days, with opportunities to engage the government officials, local academics and postgraduate students. You may also want to take some time before or after the meeting to explore Rwanda.

Register here via the HtainDB. Closing date for meeting registration Friday 10th August 2018.

NB: Registration Links for the Environmental Health and NGS Workshop will be shared once they are available

 The HtrainDB was developed in collaboration with the Education and Coordinated Training Working Group, H3ABioNet and the H3Africa Administrative Coordinating Centre. At its core we would like to track the long term progress of fellows, but realized we could use it as a broader utility to serve the needs of the consortium. The HtrainDB will also be used to announce & communicate  training events, communicate & archive opportunities and a platform for Fellows to interact. We appreciate any feedback you may have for us.
