The 15th MPS International Symposium


A Note from the Chairman

Welcome to the 15th Annual International Symposium on MPS and Related Diseases.

Registration is available for the Wednesday Educational Day.  Cost for this event has been reduced. Please consider attending this one-day conference that includes clinical and translational research opportunities in lysosomal diseases. Please click Wednesday Educational Day for more details.

Every other year, this symposium is presented and hosted in a new country, and we are thrilled to welcome the global community to the United States. Though MPS and related diseases are rare, together we can make a difference. Each country works hard to provide resources for MPS patients and families, but as a global community, our impact is much more significant. This is an exclusive opportunity for us to learn, share and experience MPS and related diseases on a larger scale.

At the symposium, you can expect to see everything from workshops geared toward best practices in MPS care to the latest advances in research from around the globe. The symposium will feature scientific and family focused tracks to meet the needs of all attendees. We will also be treating our children and siblings to a full schedule of exciting activities and experiences to keep them happy and engaged throughout the conference.

This symposium is an opportunity for the MPS and related diseases community to share and exchange new information, learn about new breakthroughs in science and medicine, and develop strategies to keep us moving forward. As we look to an exciting future filled with opportunities on a global scale, we thank you for your hard work and dedication to eradicating these diseases and welcome you to the 15th International Symposium on MPS and Related Diseases.
