Welcome dinner

December 12, 2023

Mucolipidosis Type IV Scientific Symposium
Simches Research Center, Room 3110


Wyndham Hotel, Boston Beacon Hill

The ML4 Foundation in collaboration with the Massachusetts General Hospital Center for Genomic Medicine invites researchers to a Mucolipidosis Type IV Scientific Symposium in Boston on December 12, 2023. Convened to bring together investigators working on all aspects of MLIV from preclinical to clinical research, this meeting provides a space to share updates on research and to imagine new work needed to bring meaningful treatments to the MLIV patient community.

Dive into presentations from Yulia Grishchuck (MGH), Diego Medina (TIGEM), Christian Grimm (Munich), and others as we learn, explore and plan!

The ML4 Foundation is pleased to offer lodging and travel stipends to offset costs to attend this meeting. We encourage the participation of junior investigators interested in working on MLIV research and who may be unknown to us presently. Please reach out to Rebecca Oberman if you know of someone interested in this meeting.

Please respond with your interest in attending and the nature of your presentation so we can build the agenda. We look forward to welcoming you in Boston for a dinner reception on December 11th and a stimulating and dynamic day together on December 12th.
