The inaugural Donald S. Fredrickson Conference on Familial Lipoprotein Disorders was held at the 2018 NLA Scientific Sessions, and due to its success, the conference is now being offered via a webinar format to be broadcast to NLA membership! The next webinar date will be announced soon.

These conferences and webinars provide a stimulating environment and stage for clinicians and researchers to share and discuss case reports of unusual disorders of lipoprotein metabolism. Both course formats address gene variants related to lipoprotein abnormalities, the advantages of genetic analysis and testing, and therapeutic targets and experimental techniques in development for genetic manipulation of inherited lipid disorders. 

 

Submit your case at any time of the year to be considered for presentation via a live conference or webinar!
