Scientific Symposium

Symposium 2020

Due to the impact of COVID-19, the 2020 Scientific Symposium will take place virtually. See statement here.

We encourage all researchers, clinicians, and students of all levels to attend the Symposium. The 2020 Scientific Symposium will take place virtually September 15-17.

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. Over three days, participants attend sessions on a variety of topics, from basic science to clinical outcomes. Poster presentations are displayed throughout the conference in addition to two poster receptions. Because mentorship is a core value of ours, we organize a mentorship lunch during the conference to give young and early investigators the chance to mingle and learn from experts in a number of fields. Although we will not be meeting in person in 2020, we look forward to providing opportunities for learning and connection via webinar. The webinar program will include plenary sessions with invited speakers and abstracts selected for oral presentations and an interactive poster session of selected abstracts. The details and agenda of the virtual program will be available in August.
