Our end goal:

is to reinforce knowledge of DAO Deficiency through a complete programme of scientific sessions, with experts of worldwide renown. With a forward-looking approach, we will address both diagnosis and treatment, as well as how knowledge of DAO Deficiency has led to a paradigm shift in the field of medical nutrition.

The event will be held entirely online:

Technology will make it possible:

for guests to attend all conferences through an immersive, comprehensive experience. In addition to the extensive medical and scientific programme, the exhibition with 3D stands, and online interaction with guests, congress participants and speakers will provide a one-of-a-kind stage with services just like at a face-to-face event.
