Dear Collagues,

We invite you to participate in International Symposium on Patomechanisms of Amyloid Diseases  in Catania, Italy.

The purpose of this symposium is bring established investigators and junior researchers together to expand this exciting field. Attendance will be limited, making it an ideal setting for discussion and learning.

The scientific program includes talks by the top international experts in the field as well as in-depth discussions during the informal sessions. Our aim is to summarize what is already scientifically known and learn about the cutting-edge research, and to create a forum when junior trainees can meet and network with established investigators.

Cheers,
