The National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) invites you to submit your ideas for an opportunity to be one of six speakers at our upcoming symposium, “Irreducible Subjects: Disability and Genomics in the Past, Present and Future.”
The symposium will address historical and present-day constructions of disability and ableism, with a focus on the history and lived experiences of people with disabilities in the context of genetics and genomics. The symposium will take place Oct. 6-7, 2022.

NHGRI seeks presenters who will help attendees:
