The 2017 International Research Conference on TSC and LAM will be held at Hyatt Regency Washington on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC on June 22-25, 2017. The conference will be co-hosted by the Tuberous Sclerosis Alliance (TS Alliance) and The LAM Foundation and will run concurrently with patient and family education tracks for LAM and TSC (LAMposium and TSC Regional Meeting, respectively).
Tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC) and lymphangioleiomyomatosis (LAM) are rare, life-threatening disorders sharing a common genetic and biological pathology. TSC is caused by germline or sporadic mutations in TSC1 or TSC2 genes. Individuals with TSC may develop LAM, or sporadic LAM may occur in the absence of TSC due to somatic mutations in the TSC2 gene, affecting cells in lung, lymph nodes, and renal angiomyolipomas.
Call for Abstracts
Reports on data from all aspects of basic, clinical and translational research on TSC, LAM and related disorders are invited. Platform and poster presentations will be selected from submitted abstracts based on scientific merit and thematic considerations. Decisions on whether to accept the abstract and how to group posters lie solely with the conference organizing committee.
A limited number of travel awards of up to $1,000 each, depending on funds, are available for graduate-level trainees, post-doctoral trainees, or junior faculty members who submit meritorious abstracts. These will be awarded based on the recommendations of the organizing committee.
Abstracts must be submitted online through proposalCENTRAL between January 23 and March 20. Log into proposalCENTRAL and click the “Create New Proposal” button on the Manage Proposals page. Abstract guidelines can be downloaded here. The deadline for abstract submission is 11:59 pm EDT on March 20, 2017.
