The line up for the MPS Society national conference on 7-9 July 2017 has been released and is open for bookings.

This year we celebrate the 35th anniversary of the Society for Mucopolysaccharide Diseases and throughout the 35 years our MPS weekend conference programmes have, and continue, to highlight the latest developments in clinical management and treatment ensuring those at the coal face, our members, have the most up to date information available as well as the opportunity to network with experts in the MPS community including clinicians and healthcare professionals, scientists and researchers, all under one roof over one weekend. At the 2017 conference in Coventry we will be celebrating the successes of the MPS Society over the past 35 years.

Our Saturday programme offers three separate conferences running in parallel and focusing on:

  • Conference A – MPS I, MPS II (not progressive CNS), MPS IVA, MPS VI, LAL D (late onset), ML III and Mannosidosis.
  • Conference B – MPS II (progressive CNS), MPS IIIA, B, C, D, LAL D (infantile) and rare related diseases.
  • Conference C – Fabry disease.

As well as the professional presentations each day will contain a variety of talks reflecting the personal experiences of members affected by these diseases. And, as always, the meeting offers the unique opportunity for all those participating to meet and share experiences in a relaxed environment.

The conference is open to all those living with or affected by MPS, Fabry or a related diseases as well as health, social care and educational professionals and we offer a childcare and vulnerable adult care programme.
