Since 1991, IGES has continuously provided opportunities to bring together international leaders, innovators, and students of the interdisciplinary fields comprising the study of genetic epidemiology. We have done this through our website, which facilitates membership exchanges of study design and analytic approaches, through our support of the peer-reviewed Genetic Epidemiology journal (impact factor 4.015), and most importantly, through our annual meetings which are a pivotal event for the international human population genomics research community. Additionally, we have been able to provide financial support to both outstanding students and to professionals working in low income countries, in order to facilitate their attendance at our annual conference.
