Dear Colleagues and Friends,


On behalf of the Organizing Committee, it is a great pleasure to welcome you to the 20th International Symposium of the Portuguese Society for Metabolic Disorders (SPDM). This year´s programme focus on “The Changing Paradigm of Inherited Metabolic Disorders in Portugal”, with the scope to explore and review the main advances of Inherited Metabolic Disorders (IMD) diagnosis and treatment in Portugal. The Symposium programme has the privilege to count on the participation of outstanding experts from national IMD reference institutions as well as international worldwide experts who will bring you the most recent scientific advances in the IMD field, including newborn screening, controversies regarding diagnostic techniques and new approaches to IMD treatment such as breastfeeding. We hope that most of the participants can get together in person, so important for exchange of ideas in an informal environment. The Meliá Ria Hotel offers ideal conference conditions in a modern and pleasant atmosphere. This meeting has been made possible by the support of the sponsors, which we acknowledge. We are delighted to be hosting the 2024 SPDM Annual Symposium, hoping that it will be a success, and very much look forward to welcome all of you in Aveiro.
