INFORM 2019 Agenda

Transportation will be provided to Rotterdam for the SSIEM on Monday Evening September 2nd .
Thank you for your part in supporting INFORM 2018 through your
attendance and/or your financial sponsorship.
As the only symposium of its kind in the world, INFORM gives
clinicians and researchers the opportunity to promote research and
discussion into the cause, diagnosis,and management of inborn errors
of fatty acid oxidation.
We’ve already identified several action items from September’s
symposium and look forward to working across institutions
to continue to further the best and most advanced therapeutic strategies in the treatment of FAODs. We hope you’ll continue to be involved with our efforts to host another wonderful INFORM Symposium planned for September 1st and September 2nd of 2019 in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
In the meantime, please accept my deepest appreciation for your commitment to those grappling with FAODs.
