Our Aims

We want to create a more inclusive field by promoting the active participation of Latin American populations in genomics research. We are committed to expanding the sample size and representation within genetics studies, ensuring that Latin Americans are at the forefront of scientific discovery. Through our focused recruitment and genotyping efforts, we aim to gather valuable genetic data, fostering a deeper understanding of genetic diversity and its impact on healthcare, personalized medicine, and beyond. Join us in our mission to drive positive change and shape a more equitable and inclusive future for genomics research.
