He will also sign the contract of hosting the meeting which will be held under the title Genetic Diversity and Inherited Diseases.
Mr. Abdullah Bin Souqat, Executive Director of SHAMS, said that during the13th meeting of HUGO in Hyderabad, India (2008) it was announced that the Award will host HGM2011.
Accordingly, efforts are being in full swing to guarantee that the meeting will be in line with the significant status of the United Arab Emirates and the importance of the event which will be held under the patronage of H.H. Sheikh Hamdan Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Deputy Ruler of Dubai and UAE Minister of Finance.

He also pointed out that the scientific committee has received a large number of research papers from many countries through a dedicated submission system at the website of the conference at www.hgm2011.org . The research papers will be evaluated and selected by a highly standard Scientific Committee of senior Arab and foreign scientists and geneticists.
It should be noted that over 20 years, the age of HUGO, the organization has been able to play a pivotal role in achieving many important scientific achievements in the field of Human Genome studies.
