SMA Europe takes great pride in inviting scientists and young researchers as well as clinicians and other health-care professionals from all over the world to attend the 3rd International Congress on Spinal Muscular Atrophy, from 21st to 23rd October 2022 in Barcelona, Spain.
SMA Europe is the European umbrella for national SMA patient organisations. One of our core activities is to foster patient-relevant research in the field of SMA, to communicate the value generated from research, and consequently to ensure future support for research within our community.
The goal of our scientific congress is to bring together an international and multidisciplinary group of scientists and health-care professionals. We provide a venue for them to present and exchange their breakthrough ideas relating to SMA, especially also in light of the patient-relevance of their findings, and to cement existing and stimulate new collaborations.
Our scientific congress features highly respected, internationally renowned speakers.
Equally important, it is a platform for talented young researchers. Together with health-care professionals and patient experts, they will discuss, debate and dissect significant new developments and advancements relating to SMA. Moreover, they will share their visions for the future of SMA research. By providing an opportunity to exchange scientific evidence and clinical experiences, we trust that the conference will lead to ever-improved treatment and care for patients living with SMA.
The International Congress on Spinal Muscular Atrophy is a unique occasion to meet face-to face with colleagues who are as passionate about advancing the field of SMA as you are. SMA Europe very much looks forward to welcoming you in Barcelona next year!
