On behalf of the organizing committee, I would like to thank you for making INFORM 2017 symposium ​a wonderful success. INFORM in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil had over 110 representatives from 22 countries. Day one began with our Keynote Speaker Dr. Nicola Longo, MD, PhD University of Utah, Division of Medical Genetics. After a lively Q&A session we then held our Networking Reception and Gala Dinner at the Windsor
Barra Hotel in the El Pardo Ballroom.

Day two was filled with two sessions encompassing, seven plenary talks and eight grant recipient presentations which were all very informative and interactive. We then ended the day with our poster presentation of over 30 posters and five oral presentations during the event. Everyone that attended was impressed with the engaging scientific ​and clinical presentations and the discussions which followed.

Most importantly I would like to thank our sponsors, without their continued support of our mission and research in FAOD none of this would be possible. I would also like to thank 

Dr. Roberto Giugliani, Chairman of the ICIEM 2017 for providing us a spectacular venue to hold or symposium.   

​In September of 2108 ​we will be in Athens, Greece preceding ​SSIEM. I hope that you will be able to join us once again.
Best regards,
