The 5th Glycoproteinoses Conference, brought basic scientists and clinicians from around the world to Rome, Italy, to share with patients and their families the latest discoveries. This year’s Conference was special in many ways. It was the first to be held in Europe, with the intent of strengthening connections among affected families around the globe and to strengthen our connections with other support groups in Europe.
ISMRD was honored and thrilled to have the Italian MPS Society helping us in the early stages of planning of the children’s program. Sara Pensa the Vice President and Luciano Catozzi and ML family member ensured we got to see many possible activities for the children. We thank them both so very much for their help.
Countries represented were: Australia, Norway, Italy, Spain, New Zealand, Brazil, Germany, USA, United Kingdom, France, Austria, Saudi Arabia, Denmark, Netherlands, Algeria, Slovenia, Sweden and Ireland, which gave us a total of 175 delegates.
ISMRD gives a very special thank you to the following organization and companies who have very generously given donations to support the 5th International conference on Glycoproteinoses.
