Scientific Symposium


2022 Symposium

Join us in Austin, Texas from September 8-11 for the 2022 FA Scientific Symposium. Updates and changes can be found on this page. Be sure to check back for COVID protocols or changes to the event.

What is the Symposium?

Research is at the heart of what we do. That’s why every year, FARF gathers prominent and aspiring FA researchers and clinicians together to share the latest updates in research and treatment and to form new collaborations. The FARF Scientific Symposium was hosted virtually in 2021 due to safety concerns related to the ongoing global coronavirus pandemic. The 2021 Symposium was offered as a four-part virtual series throughout the month of July and focused on four key areas relevant to FA research: gene therapy, bone marrow failure, DNA repair, and cancer. Each topic was covered in a one-day event and incorporated live oral talks, panels, and an interactive social reception. Pending any safety concerns related to the ongoing pandemic, the Fanconi Anemia Research Fund looks forward to hosting an in-person conference in 2022.
