home - Greetings
Thank you to the members of the Korean Society of Diagnostic Genetics and to all of you who visited this society.

This society started as the Genetic and Molecular Diagnostic Research Group in 2006 and has grown into the Korean Genetic and Molecular Diagnostic Society in 2011.

Since 2017, it has been renamed as the Korean Society for Diagnostic Genetics, and experts in various fields who are active in the field of diagnostic genetics have also participated, and it is developing into a society with 1,700 members. Genetic diagnostic technology and genetics and genomics fields that are evolving day by day are very important tools for patient care and are playing a leading role in future medicine. As the president of the Korean Diagnostic Genetics Association, which plays an important role in these changes, I feel a great sense of responsibility, and I realize the need for wisdom and insight from members.

We have formed a new executive team together with the talented and passionate teachers of our society, and we are looking forward to a more robust operation and development of the society in the future.
Our society aims to promote the development of genetic testing and molecular diagnostics through academic exchanges, research presentations, and education in the field of diagnostic medical testing using genetic disease-related tests and molecular techniques. To this end, although various academic activities have been faithfully carried out so far, the appearance of an academic society is required to respond to the rapidly changing situation during the corona pandemic era. In addition, as we are facing changes in policies related to genetic testing and challenges in the surrounding environment, it is necessary to conduct diversified academic activities.

This year, holding academic conferences in line with the post-corona era, training members through specialized workshops, expanding the exchange of the latest information, establishing standard guidelines for genetic testing, revitalizing academic journals, supporting each committee work, actively participating in the establishment of genetic testing policies, and others. We will do our best for policy cooperation and information exchange with the society, and for the operation of a substantial society.

We thank you for your interest and affection for the Korean Society of Diagnostic Genetics, and we look forward to your continued participation and advice for the further development of the Society.​

The President of the Korean Society for Genetic Diagnostics Eul-Ju Seo
