What is Lamposium?
The International LAM Research Conference and LAMposium is the largest LAM conference in the world – attracting nearly 400 people representing the global LAM community to one location. This signature event is produced by The LAM Foundation and hosted in different locations every two to three years.
The conference is made up of three events in one, productively focusing on:
Educating Patients and Families (LAMposium)
LAM is rare. Women with LAM, families, and friends have the opportunity to share their experiences living with LAM and learn the latest news in LAM research and clinical care from LAM experts from around the world. At LAMposium, patients can easily connect with others with LAM and interact with researchers and clinicians who are leaders in their fields.
Sharing and Inspiring New Research (International LAM Research Conference)
The research conference is critical to advancing LAM research efforts, fostering dialog, and cultivating relationships among LAM researchers and clinicians. More than 100 researchers and clinicians share results from current studies, trials, and clinical therapies. Our unique model of bringing researchers and clinicians together with patients is a key factor in creating and sustaining interest, momentum, and progress in LAM research.
Generating Partnerships and Funds to Find a Cure (Breath of Hope Gala)
Hundreds of people gather at the Breath of Hope Gala to raise funds to find a cure. The Gala is a truly inspiring event celebrating the resilience and strength of all women with LAM.
One patient described her LAMposium experience by saying, “I always learn something new and interesting at LAMposium, whether related to the science and research behind the disease, or how someone else is handling a certain issue. It’s always good to connect with other women who share the same struggles and hopes. LAMposium is always a very positive experience!”
