Fatty acid oxidation disorders (FAODs) can threaten the lives of infants, children, and adults. These inherited metabolic conditions prevent the body from generating cellular energy from fats during times of stress, illness, or fasting. Their symptoms can range from mild to chronic medical problems and even cause sudden death.
Founded in 2013 by a series of qualified doctors and researchers, the International Network for Fatty Acid Oxidation Research and Management (INFORM) is the only global scientific organization that focuses on FAODs and related enzymatic disorders involving the carnitine transport cycle. If there is one thing you should know about INFORM Network, our goal is to research and educate. We also look to inform the general public on FAODs, especially for family members of those with fatty acid oxidation disorders.
At the International Network for Fatty Acid Oxidation Research and Management (INFORM), we also host a fatty oxidation disorder conference each year that doubles as our annual meeting. Here top researchers can not only learn more about INFORM Network but also gather to discuss the most recent advances in the field.
