About the Symposium

sea-6The United Mitochondrial Disease Foundation Symposium has been recognized by many researchers, scientists, and families as THE symposium for mitochondrial disease in the world. 15 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 650 attendees…representing almost every state in the United States and more than 15 different countries from around the world.

Every time I attend it gets better and better . . . speakers, networking, etc. and especially the last 2-3 years, clinical trial/studies part of program. Great to see more in attendance!

Talking with doctors and researchers! So helpful. Teen sessions… My kids loved feeling a part of a group of teens that were “like them.”

For our family, this symposium was transformational. We have been given hope. For our daughter, she now has friends who get her!
