At the meeting, a number of agreements on wide-scale cooperation with this university were reached. In particular, the agreement in the field of medical genetics with the Harvard Genomics Center became an important basis for the systematic establishment of this direction in our country.

It should be said that this cooperation includes establishing a center for medical genetics in our country, providing it with the latest and modern medical equipment, retraining and improving the skills of Uzbek specialists at the US university.

It is also planned to train the leading personnel of the health care system, improve the qualifications of medical genetics specialists, train them as trainers, establish cooperation between Harvard University and specialized centers of our country, and expand scientific relations.

Consequently, the issue of jointly developing the architecture, design, strategy and concept of the Medical Genetics Center to be established in Uzbekistan was discussed.
