Founded in 1983, the Network of Applied Medical Genetics' objective is to support and develop basic and applied human genetic research by creating, managing and promoting scientific infrastructures and knowledge transfer for the benefit of the Quebec population.
The Network supports service platforms, develops Statements of Principles, offers scholarships to students and postdocs, and organizes workshops and meetings.
