Thank you for joining us!

The 2022 International Scientific Symposium

Thank you for an incredible #ISS2022! We were delighted to welcome clinicians and basic and clinical researchers from around the world to Rome, Italy, for the triennial International Scientific Symposium: a four-day, state-of-the-art meeting in which new research on clinical advances and the molecular and pathogenic mechanisms underlying EDS and related syndromes were discussed.

Due to the pandemic, the International Scientific Symposium had been delayed from 2020, but now that travel restrictions have eased, we were so happy that we could join together in person again. The International Consortium on EDS and HSD brought together leading experts, clinicians, and scientists in the field of EDS and HSD for a high-quality, scientific program with a focus on Translational Medicine in EDS and HSD – from Basic Science to Community.

Live simultaneous translations allowed participants to listen to the talks in Italian, French, and Spanish.

Throughout the conference, we were joined by attendees in 42 countries around the world: Argentina, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Chile, China, Colombia, Denmark, Finland, France, Georgia, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Kuwait, Latvia, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Norway, Panama, Poland, Portugal, Republic of Korea, Russia, Saudi Arabia Singapore, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, South Africa, the Netherlands, Turkey, Venezuela, United Kingdom, United States Minor Outlying Islands and the United States of America – 56% of you are first time attendees to an EDS Society conference.

We were very proud to be joined by our incredible partner sponsors for this event, Partner Sponsors, Aytu BioPharma, and Supporting Sponsors DM Orthotics, Lipedema Foundation, and Body Braid. Scroll the #ISS2022 gallery to see our favorite pictures from the event!
