Fourth International MHE Research Conference, Thursday, November 01, 2012 - Sunday, November 04, 2012
Location: Philadelphia, PA
Description: The goals of the conference are: 1)-to provide a forum to share the most recent and unpublished findings in these areas amongst the major laboratories working on MHE; 2)-to share this knowledge with experts in closely related fields who can provide critical input and fresh perspectives, and be inspired to work directly on this debilitating and potential serious pediatric disorder individually or in collaboration; 3)-to develop an understanding of the medical and clinical complexity of MHE as thoroughly as possible. MHE children also have additional and potentially debilitating pathologies. This requires the concerted effort of experts in orthopaedics, genetics, enzymology, glycobiology and developmental and cell biology; and, 4)-to share insights gained in animal model systems and in MHE human specimens.
