International Symposium on the Ehlers-Danlos Syndromes
26th-29th September 2018, Ghent, Belgium

The International Symposium on the Ehlers-Danlos Syndromes (EDS) is a state-of-the-art meeting in which new research on clinical advances and the molecular and pathogenic mechanisms underlying EDS and related syndromes is discussed. 

The general theme of the 2019 meeting is “Interaction and signaling: recurrent themes in the molecular mechanisms of EDS”.

The meeting brings together an international panel of clinicians, clinical and basic scientists, and representatives of patients support groups to foster constructive discussions and multidisciplinary debates that focus on the multiple aspects of the Ehlers-Danlos syndromes and associated pathologies.

These include the molecular etiology of these disorders, the biochemical abnormalities produced by the underlying mutations affecting genes involved in connective tissue homeostasis, the clinical consequences of these mutations, the latest advances in therapies and management (medical, surgical and physiotherapeutic), and the effects of these interventions on the natural history of the disease.
