Back from ASHG, San Diego

The American Society of Human Genetics conference each year is a fantastic place to hear about the latest genetics research, meet old friends and colleagues, and make some new ones! This year was no different and to top it off it was in one of my favourite places - San Diego, California :-)

My presentation was part of the Gene Discovery and Functional Models of Neurological Disorders session on the first full day of the conference, and described some exciting new results as part of an ongoing collaboration to identify new genes for Hereditary Spastic Paraplegia.

It was a little scary thinking about getting up and speaking in a room full of experts but it was a great opportunity to share our work, and it felt great to be invited.

Of course I also made the most of my trip to San Diego with a few visits to some old haunts - and they didn’t disappoint!

All in all it was a great meeting and a fun trip to California!
