The first Manchester Dysmorphology Conference was organized in 1984 by Professor Dian Donnai. Over the years, this biennial conference has brought experts within the field of genomic syndromology together from around the globe, to share knowledge and ideas which further our understanding of developmental disorders and congenital malformations. The conference aims to provide cutting edge content and a welcoming, relaxed setting to encourage discussions, forge collaborations and inspire new ways of improving the lives of patients.


We welcome professionals working in the field of dysmorphology or congenital malformations, or developmental disorders. Please note that the number of conference places are limited.
