​2017 ​preceding

The International Network for Fatty Acid Oxidation Research and Management  
was formed in order to promote research and discussion into the cause, diagnosis, and management of inborn errors of fatty acid oxidation. INFORM will sponsor a symposium each year, with this ​year's 2017 symposium being held ​in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The Network will provide
​a collaborative framework for ongoing communication and research. Please plan to join us and hear from the experts on a wide range of topics from molecular pathophysiology to treatment strategies.
