Welcome!

Crossing oceans for a cure. The International Society for Mannosidosis & Related Storage Diseases (ISMRD) is proud to announce The 2012 International Conference for Glycoprotein Storage Diseases.

  • The Scientific/Family conference will be 28th – 29th July. The scientific and family meetings will be running concurrently.
  • Natural History Clinic days are Friday July 27th and Monday July 30th

The Conference will take place in Charleston, South Carolina at the Crowne Plaza Hotel

Alongside this meeting we will be hosting the extension of the Natural History Study (see dates above). These clinics will be held in Dr Cathey's Charleston Office.

ISMRD's primary mission has always been two-fold: to support families throughout the world affected by a Glycoprotein & Related Storage Disease, and to promote opportunities to further scientific and clinical understanding of the underlying mechanisms resulting in these diseases. In our view, the ultra-orphan nature of these disorders requires a synergy between both aspects of this mission if therapies and treatments are ever to occur.

We look forward to welcoming you all to Charleston, South Carolina.
