INFORM is receiving many queries if the INFORM 2020 Symposium is still making plans to move forward, and at this time the answer is YES. We will be following the lead of the SSIEM seeing that we precede their symposium. However, please check back to our website often and we will be in contact with all of our speakers and those that have already registered to attend INFORM 2020 in the upcoming month.
We are hopeful that you will be able to submit your abstract by April 22, 2020. https://informnetwork.org/call-for-abstracts/
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.

“I appreciate that INFORM always provides us the most advanced, the most professional, and the most comprehensive information about defects of beta-oxidation.”
“Together we can generate the energy to beat these diseases”
“INFORM brings together the best and brightest researchers and physicians from around the world to discuss cutting edge research and best and new practices in fatty acid oxidation disorders.”
“The challenge with being on the cutting edge is that you are always dealing with things that didn’t happen yesterday”.
Special thanks to our 2020 Sponsors!
With significant new research and best practices on the horizon,
INFORM 2020 promises to be our most informative symposium ever!
Taking place August 30th -31st in Freiburg, Germany.
