About GEnetics NEtwork Amsterdam

The GEnetics NEtwork Amsterdam (GENE Amsterdam) is an initiative by Amsterdam-based scientists working in human genetics research. Amsterdam hosts several research groups from different institutes working in human genetics; with our network we like to stimulate knowledge exchange and collaboration between these groups.

At the GENE Amsterdam website you can find recent research highlights, personal pages of our members, relevant events, and information about courses and vacancies and internships in the field of human genetics.

GENE Amsterdam also organises monthly research meetings where recent scientific studies are presented and discussed. Annually, we also organise a GeNe Amsterdam research day where we come together to present our work to each other.

If you are interested in joining us, would like to subscribe to our mailing list, or if you have any upcoming event you would like us to post, please send us a message through the contact form.
