4th International Meeting on Laminopathies 2023

The meeting, to be celebrated in Madrid on May 09-12, 2023,
on a face-to-face format.

The 4th International Meeting on Laminopathies will bring together a wide range of experts in the field of these rare diseases caused by mutations in genes encoding proteins of the nuclear envelope. Laminopathies can affect single tissues (mainly striated muscle, adipose tissue and peripheral nerve) or multiple organs. Numerous mutations have been associated with laminopathies, but the mechanisms underlying disease initiation and progression remain poorly characterized. Accordingly, there is a lack of specific and effective treatments for laminopathies. The meeting will be open to researchers, physicians and patients from around the world with the main goal of synergistically exchange knowledge and ideas to better understand laminopathies and help develop new therapies. The meeting will include sessions focused on basic-molecular research, disease-modeling, as well as therapeutic and clinical aspects of laminopathies. Patients will be part of the meeting in a specific session co-organized with scientists. The number of participants (~200) and format of the event will promote the dialogue between all the main stakeholders involved in the study of laminopathies. In summary, the 4th International Meeting on Laminopathies will be a multidisciplinary scientific meeting focused on helping researchers and clinicians to find effective therapies and eventually the cure for laminopathies.

Abstract submission deadline
12 March 2023

On behalf of the Scientific Committee, thank you for submitting your work at the 4th International Meeting on Laminopathies in Madrid.

To ensure that the best and most current research is presented, a large proportion of the programme is dedicated to selected abstracts.

  • Once you have registered to participate in the conference, you can then submit your abstract via your online account. (private area)
  • Abstracts must be submitted online via the website only. Abstracts that are sent via email , fax or post will NOT be accepted.
  • The Committee will endeavor to schedule abstracts according to authors’ preferences but reserves the right to decide on the final form of presentation.
  • The presenting author assumes full responsibility for the contents of the abstract and must ensure that all other authors are aware and have approved the abstract before submission. All the authors should submit their very best abstract within the given deadline.
  • Please ensure that the email address provided when submitting the abstract is entered correctly and will still be valid in the lead up to and during the event as we will need to contact you about the outcome of your submission.
  • When the submission process is finalized, you will see your abstract under the heading "Submitted Abstract". The submission form allows you to store your abstract as a DRAFT until the deadline. After the deadline if not submitted, drafts will be deleted.
  • Click on the SUBMIT button at the end of the process in order to submit your abstract. You can make changes to your submitted abstract by the deadline. After the submission deadline abstracts cannot be modified or corrected.
  • You will receive an abstract ID number and title via email after you have submitted your abstract. Please refer to this abstract number in all correspondence regarding the abstract.
  • Please contact us if you have not received confirmation that your abstract has been submitted to program@laminopathy2023.com
