International Cohorts Summit
March 26 - 27, 2018, Durham, NC, USA
The International Cohorts Summit was conceived by the Heads of International Research Organizations (HIROs) group co-chaired by Jeremy Farrar of the Wellcome Trust and Francis Collins at the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Approximately 100 individuals representing 60 cohort studies and 25 countries attended this first forum in Durham, North Carolina with the goal to enable leaders of large-scale longitudinal cohorts worldwide to share best practices, discuss data sharing, explore standards, discuss common challenges, and explore the potential for a larg(er) collaborative sequencing strategy.

Global Leaders in Genomic Medicine
January 8 - 9, 2014, Washington
G2MC was formed from the 2014 Global Leaders in Genomic Medicine Summit that was sponsored by the US National Human Genome Research Institute and the Institute of Medicine (now the National Academy of Medicine).
About 60 leaders from 25 nations were at the inaugural meeting and several working groups were formed to initiate ideas and dialogue on the common and unique country specific challenges to implementation as well as their solutions. This first meetings findings were summarized in a policy paper published in Science Translational Medicine. “
