Emerging Trends in Lysosomal Biology & Lysosomal Diseases: STATE-OF-THE-ART FOR EXPERTS

Sunday, January 30, 2022 – March 15, 2022

For the tenth consecutive year, WORLDSymposium™ will begin with “Emerging Trends”. This half day CME/CE course provides a state-of-the-art update for experts working in lysosomal biology and lysosomal diseases. This course is a summary of the latest research trends and other advances in the field.

Seasoned researchers provide a global review of the past years’ advances, a state-of-the-art overview of lysosome biology, diseases and therapies. This review evolves every year, providing a summary of the latest research trends, new knowledge, and other discoveries. The course is intended for researchers and health care practitioners who are interested in being current on recent advances in the basic science, diagnosis, and treatment of lysosomal diseases. This course is taught at the postgraduate level, e.g., those with a PhD, MD, PharmD, DDS, MS, MPH, etc.

The content provides comprehensive information on lysosomal diseases, but does not overlap or replace the scientific data being presented during WORLDSymposium 2022.

Emerging Trends 2022 will be offered as a  pre-recorded virtual-only session that will be available to view online starting Sunday, January 30, 2022 at 10:00 AM Pacific Standard Time (PST). After the session concludes at 2:00 PM PST, it will be available to watch on demand until March 15, 2022.  (No in-person meeting will be held for this session, it will be virtual online only.)

Registration Required.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this educational activity, the participant should be better able to:

  1. Describe the basic structure, function and molecular biology of lysosomes.
  2. Identify specific lysosomal diseases, their clinical manifestations, and means of diagnosis.
  3. Review current treatments for lysosomal diseases, the potential side effects, and their expected clinical outcomes.
  4. Correlate the molecular biology of lysosomes with clinical features, diagnostic testing, and treatment approaches.
