The International Network for Fatty Acid Oxidation Research and Management (INFORM) was formed by Jerry Vockley in order to promote research and discussion into the cause, diagnosis, and management of fatty acid oxidation disorders (FAODs). We offer several learning opportunities throughout the year for patients, families, and researchers. Our network will provide a collaborative framework for ongoing communication and research regarding these disorders, as well as work with our partners to sponsor a symposium each year. Please plan to join us in the future to hear from the experts on a wide range of topics from molecular pathophysiology to treatment strategies.
We believe in the power of fatty acid oxidation research to gain a better understanding of these disorders. You can review abstracts from INFORM Network’s previous international symposiums or submit an abstract for our 2020 conference in Freiburg, Germany, scheduled for August 30th and 31st, preceding the SSIEM.
Virtual Tissue Bank
The Virtual Tissue Bank (VTB) grew out of the desire to share research sample information and testing results to help advance the diagnosis and treatment of fatty oxidation disorders and the carnitine cycle in order to increase knowledge and help patients worldwide.
At INFORM Network, we offer a comprehensive resource for families and friends impacted by fatty acid oxidation disorders. Here you can learn the latest developments in genetic research and access important information on screening, diagnosis, and treatment.
Sponsor INFORM 2020 Conference
Our 2020 FAOD conference and symposium in Freiburg, Germany will discuss the proper diagnostic interpretation of laboratory testing, the development of new therapeutic strategies, and the role of newborn screening in preventing complications. It will also serve as our annual meeting.
