The Advances in Social Genomics Conference Series (TAGC)

Hosted at the University of Wisconsin-Madison
Madison, Wisconsin, June 8-9, 2023

With support from the National Institute of Aging, the Center for Demography of Health and Aging and Initiative in Social Genomics at the University of Wisconsin-Madison is hosting The Advances in Social Genomics Conference Series (TAGC).

The goal of this conference is to showcase scholarship that considers biodemographic factors across the life course that shape health and aging processes. The two-day conference will include a three-hour training workshop focused on the All of Us data and applications, a keynote presentation, and a set of paper presentations.  Researchers from any of the biological or social sciences are encouraged to participate. There is no conference registration fee. Funding is available for travel/accommodations of selected papers.
