We are pleased to announce the 2016 Golden Helix Summer School that will be held in the island of Syros, Greece, the capital of the Cyclades islands in the Aegean archipelago. The 2016 Golden Helix Summer School will be organized on September 22-26, 2016 and the theme of the Summer School will be "Cancer genomics and individualized treatment" and will revolve around the application of the most important disciplines of Genomic Medicine in Cancer, such as Genomics and Pharmacogenomics, Public Health, informatics, drug design, etc.

Also, we have enriched the scientific program of this 2016 Golden Helix Summer school with a career development session at the last day of this event, in which 6 members of the Faculty will engage into lively discussions with the summer school participants about issues related to career advancement.

Apart from the high quality scientific program, the 2016 Golden Helix Summer School offers an attractive social program that includes a visit to the Apollo Theater in Hermoupolis, and a traditional farewell dinner, allowing participants to get to know each other in a very informal way.

We have made every effort to minimize the registration fees to encourage participation of researchers from lower-income countries.

We are looking forward to welcoming you to Syros, Greece next September and to a very fruitful and stimulating conference.
