Hosted by the Sanfilippo Children's Foundation

In collaboration with the Laboratory for Human Neurobiology, South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute (SAHMRI), Adelaide, the Sanfilippo Children’s Foundation is excited to host the 2023 Solving Sanfilippo Symposium on 19th and 20th May 2023.

The Symposium will bring together Australian researchers, clinicians and parents to discuss research into Sanfilippo syndrome (mucopolysaccharidosis type III) and related conditions. 

We look forward to a day and a half of energising discussions on shared results, emerging directions and progress. 

We are excited to welcome international keynote speaker Professor Nicola Allen who will join us virtually from the Salk Institute, San Diego, USA to discuss the role of astrocytes in neurodegenerative disease.

The Symposium sessions will reflect the research pillars of the Global Roadmap for Sanfilippo Syndrome Therapeutics with Australian and international speakers addressing these key themes: 

STOP - treating the root cause of Sanfilippo, including early diagnosis, small molecule therapies & drug repurposing

TREAT - targeting the underlying pathology of Sanfilippo, including neuroinflammation & autophagy

MANAGE - targeting the symptoms and impact of Sanfilippo on individuals and families

This is an in-person event held at SAHMRI, North Terrace, Adelaide. Your physical attendance is strongly encouraged, however, virtual attendance is also possible. Register through the link below as an in-person or virtual attendee.
