About the Symposium
The United Mitochondrial Disease Foundation Symposium has been recognized by many researchers, scientists, and families as THE symposium for mitochondrial disease in the world. 10 years ago, the UMDF had only a handful of exhibitors and less than 200 scientific attendees. We now have more exhibitors than space at times and close to 600 attendees…representing almost every state in the United States and more than 15 different countries from around the world.
Conveniently located near Washington, DC and Reagan International Airport, the Hilton Alexandria Mark Center sits on a serene lakeside, blissfully adjacent to 43 acres of botanical preserve. Our 55,000 sq. ft. meeting space is perfect for your dream wedding or any other event – giving you the option of entertaining your guests indoors or outdoors. Savor the delectable cuisine at our award-winning restaurant, Finn & Porter and tantalize your taste buds with its innovative cocktails and select wines.
