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.
We encourage all researchers, clinicians, and students of all levels to attend the Symposium, which is why there is no conference fee. Attendees are responsible for their own travel and lodging arrangements, though we do offer travel scholarships to those whose institutions cannot provide financial support.
The 2018 FA Scientific Symposium took place September 27-30 in Newport Beach, California. We are grateful by the support and participation by more than 250 investigators and clinicians.
