INFORM Advances Research and Treatment of Fatty Acid Oxidation Disorders (FAODs)
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, 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.

INFORM brings together the best and brightest genetic researchers and clinicians worldwide, working to discover treatments and cures for fatty acid oxidation disorders to improve the lives of our patients and their families.
About the Inform Network Organizing Committee
“The challenge with being on the cutting edge is that you are always dealing with things that didn’t happen yesterday.”
“I appreciate that INFORM always provides us the most advanced, the most professional, and the most comprehensive information about defects of beta-oxidation.”
“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”.
Unlocking the Future
We are committed to discovering new FAOD treatments and cures to improve the lives of our patients and their families.
