International Symposium on the Ehlers-Danlos Syndromes

It is with great pleasure that we invite you to participate in the International Symposium on the Ehlers-Danlos Syndromes from September 26–29, 2018 in beautiful Ghent, Belgium.

The 2018 International Symposium on the EDS will bring together again clinicians and scientists working in the field of the Ehlers-Danlos syndromes. As a general theme for this meeting, we chose: “Interaction and signaling: recurrent themes in the molecular mechanisms of EDS.” The focus of the meeting will be on molecular, pathogenic, clinical, and management aspects of all types of Ehlers-Danlos syndromes.

We strongly encourage clinicians and researchers with an interest in the Ehlers-Danlos syndromes to attend this meeting. We’re expecting between 200 and 250 delegates from all around the world to attend.

For more information and a link to registration, please visit the symposium site.
