The GET Conference brings together leading thinkers to discuss how we measure and understand people and their traits.

The GET Conference brings together leading thinkers to discuss how we measure and understand people and their traits. For the past five years, this event has explored the frontiers of understanding about human biology and serves as an annual forum to debate the technical, commercial, and societal impacts.
The GET Conference is produced by PersonalGenomes.org, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization based in the United States whose mission is to make a wide spectrum of human biological information accessible and actionable to increase biological literacy and improve human health. We support groundbreaking initiatives including the Global Network of Personal Genome Projects, Open Humans and the GET Conference.
We will explore this and more across several sessions:
The GET Conference is preceded by uniquely interactive program called GET Labs, where we bring together a cohort of highly-characterized, informed participants and a global network of collaboration-minded researchers who wish to study them. This invitation-only event aims to advance the science of human health through direct participation. In past events, we've helped research groups study human variation across a wide range of traits: flu susceptibility, brain structure, facial morphology, pluripotent stem cell establishment, demodex mites, viral profiling, exercise physiology, sleep, and many others.
Call for Research Studies: We are now inviting applications from researchers to bring their research studies to the 2016 GET Labs event. For more information, see Lab page.
