Welcome note

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

We are delighted to invite you to attend the 8th Online World Congress on Controversies in Preconception, Preimplantation and Prenatal Genetic Diagnosis (CoGEN) which will take place on November 6, 2021 (10:30-16:00 CET).

Last year’s 7th Online CoGEN World Congress (Link to program) attracted over 5000 participants. With this year’s exciting program, including world-renowned speakers and experts in the field, we expect even more participants.

The COGEN Online World Congress is free of charge and talks will be recorded and remain on the COGEN Website (link)

“Why should I attend?”
CoGEN focuses on Innovation in Preconception, Preimplantation and Prenatal Genetic Diagnosis, including:

  • Novel strategies for Non-Invasive Prenatal Testing (NIPT) and Non-invasive Prenatal Diagnosis (NIPD).
  • The use of Whole Exome/Genome Sequencing (WES/WGS) in the evaluation of the malformed fetus.
  • Preimplantation Genetic Testing for Aneuploidy (PGT-A)
  • Expanded carrier screening (ECS)

Our mission is to disseminate educational material on Reproductive Genetics to healthcare providers around the world and to provide a forum for the exchange of knowledge and ideas.

We look forward to welcoming you on November 6, 2021


Prof. Yuval Yaron
Chairman, CoGEN – Controversies in Genetics
