It gives us great pleasure to invite you, on behalf of the Organizing Committee, to the joint 5th Pan Arab Human Genetics Conference (PAHGC) and the Golden Helix Symposium 2013, with the theme Genomics Into Healthcare.
The previous editions of the Pan Arab Human Genetic Conference endeavored to bring together diverse expertise and resources pertaining to the field of medical genetics in the Arab World, thereby facilitating multidisciplinary research. These conferences successfully provided a platform for regional and international researchers and professionals in genetics to have a constructive dialogue and share their views. We continue our efforts in this direction with the 5th PAHGC. This edition of the conference will be held jointly with the 2013 Golden Helix Symposium, belonging to an internationally high-profile series of scientific symposia in the field of personalized medicine, organized annually by the Golden Helix Institute of Biomedical Research.
The conference will focus on topics ranging from cancer genomics and NexGen sequencing to molecular profiling and pharmacogenomics. International and regional experts will take to the platform to deliver their lectures on these topics. We are also encouraging researchers to submit their abstracts for oral or poster presentation at the conference. Also, a special feature of the conference will be a workshop on rare disorders.

We look forward to your presence and active participation at the 5th PAHGC, to be held between the 17th and 19th of November, 2013 at Dubai, United Arab Emirates.

Prof. Najib Al Khaja
President of the Conference
