The Roscongress Foundation is a socially oriented non-financial development institution and a major organizer of international conventions; exhibitions; and business, public, sporting, and cultural events. It was established in pursuance of a decision by the President of the Russian Federation.

The Foundation was established in 2007 with the aim of facilitating the development of Russia’s economic potential, promoting its national interests, and strengthening the country’s image. One of the roles of the Foundation is to comprehensively evaluate, analyse, and cover issues on the Russian and global economic agendas. It also offers administrative services, provides promotional support for business projects and attracting investment, and helps foster social entrepreneurship and charitable initiatives.

Each year, the Foundation’s events draw participants from 208 countries and territories, with more than 15,000 media representatives working on-site at Roscongress’ various venues. The Foundation benefits from analytical and professional expertise provided by 5000 people working in Russia and abroad. In addition, it works in close cooperation with 160 economic partners; industrialists’ and entrepreneurs’ unions; and financial, trade, and business associations from 75 countries worldwide.

The Roscongress Foundation has Telegram channels in Russian (t.me/Roscongress), English (t.me/RoscongressDirect), and Spanish (t.me/RoscongressEsp). Official website and Information and Analytical System of the Roscongress Foundation: roscongress.org.

«Science begins with measurement. The exact sciences would be inconceivable without measurements» (Dmitry Mendeleev)

Genomics is one of the fastest-growing and most promising branches of modern science. Research to decode the genome is already impacting medicine, as new approaches to the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of many diseases — including cancer — are developed. What’s more, the field offers a powerful example of what can be achieved when scientists from different countries work together on challenges for the benefit of humanity.

What possibilities and risks are associated with research in the human genome? What possibilities are offered by genomics with regard to predicting, preventing, diagnosing and treating disease? What is the role of genomics in developing a personalized approach to healthcare? What steps can be taken to accelerate the introduction of new treatment methods based on genome research?
