The International Society of Amyloidosis (ISA) is a non-profit organisation of Scientists and Physicians engaged in research, teaching, or practice in connection with amyloid and amyloidosis. The aims of the Society are to promote research, education, clinical studies (including diagnosis and treatment), conferences and symposia on all aspects of amyloidosis. These symposia are held every two years in a different amyloidosis centre around the world.

This year the members of the ISA Board with members of Mayo Clinic have put together an attractive scientific hybrid program. This program will cover a variety of types of systemic amyloidosis: ATTR (hereditary and wild-type), AL (light-chain), AA and less frequent forms.

It is not too late to register to attend this meeting.
