Welcome to the IGES Website and Membership Portal!

Become a member of the International Genetic Epidemiology Society (IGES) and join a collaborative international community of leaders in genetics, epidemiology, statistics, biology and related biomedical disciplines, all with a keen interest in and intense enthusiasm for solving complex scientific problems in genetic epidemiology and statistical genetics. Join IGES and stay up to date on leading study designs and methodological developments for novel “omics” data.

Our goal is to keep our members connected and informed. This new portal features great tools for you to stay up-to-date, find members, become a member, or renew your current membership all in one place.  In addition, annual meeting registration and abstract submissions will all be housed within the same system. With social networking support, simple tools for staying in touch, space for sharing documents, photos and resources to support committees, this portal will help us market our association and highlight great work being done by our members.  So pardon our dust, we’re still under construction. But we invite you to come see what we’ve started!

See the word cloud of evolving terms from IGES meetings 1997 to 2023, here!
