International Scientific, Medical
& Family Conference

The Barth Syndrome Foundation’s (BSF) biennial conferences bring affected families, research scientists, and clinicians together in one place at one time for a dual track meeting.

Doctors who might care for a single patient will have the opportunity to see well over 50 individuals with Barth syndrome at once; thereby, gaining a greater understanding of the breadth of the disorder. Additionally, they will be able to compare notes with other physicians and also hear from scientific experts about the latest discoveries and upcoming potential treatment options.

Scientists will hear presentations on colleagues’ recent work as well as learn from and have a chance to collaborate with experts in other fields. Furthermore, they will gain insight into the clinical aspects of the disorder and witness the medical ramifications of what they discover in the laboratory.

Families and individuals with Barth syndrome have a unique opportunity to be seen by the world’s greatest experts in Barth syndrome, contributing directly to the search for a cure by providing their information, their health history, and even their own tissue in addition to learning from experts and from each other so that they can better advocate for themselves or their child(ren).

2022 Conference Update

February 2022

After much thought, discussions, survey responses and planning sessions, it was decided to postpone the 2022 International Scientific, Medical, and Family Conference.

It is very disappointing to wait another year for the conference, however it was felt to be the best decision on behalf of the community.

Keep watching for updates for next year.
