Emerging Trends in Lysosomal Biology & Lysosomal Diseases: STATE OF THE ART FOR EXPERTS

Monday, February 4, 2019 from 1:00 – 5:00 PM

For the seventh consecutive year, WORLDSymposium begins with “Emerging Trends” on Monday afternoon, February 4, 2019 at 1:00 PM. This 4-hour CME course provides a state-of-the-art update for experts working in lysosomal biology and lysosomal diseases. This course is a summary of the latest research trends and other advances in the field.

Seasoned researchers provide a global review of the past years’ advances, a state-of-the-art overview of lysosome biology, diseases and therapies. This review evolves every year, providing a summary of the latest research trends, new knowledge, and other discoveries. The course is intended for researchers and health care practitioners who are interested in being current on recent advances in the basic science, diagnosis, and treatment of lysosomal diseases. This course is taught at the postgraduate level, e.g., those with a PhD, MD, PharmD, DDS, MS, MPH, etc.

The content provides comprehensive information on lysosomal diseases, but does not overlap or replace the scientific data being presented during WORLDSymposium 2018. Registration Required.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this educational activity, the participant should be better able to:

  1. Describe the basic structure, function and molecular biology of lysosomes.
  2. Identify specific lysosomal diseases, their clinical manifestations, and means of diagnosis.
  3. Review current treatments for lysosomal diseases, the potential side effects, and their expected clinical outcomes.
  4. Correlate the molecular biology of lysosomes with clinical features, diagnostic testing, and treatment approaches.
