Welcome Letter


Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of the Organizing Committee, I have a great pleasure to announce the 16th International Symposium of the Portuguese Society for Metabolic Disorders (SPDM). This year, to adapt to the COVID-19 pandemic and its implications, the Organizing Committee has come to the decision to transform the Symposium into a fully virtual meeting, from the 11th to the 13th November.

Starting a new decade and under the motto “New Horizons in Inborn Errors of Metabolism”, we aim to bring you the most recent scientific advances and to inspire new approaches to Inherited Metabolic Disorders, with the participation of world experts. The programme includes topics that are transversal to clinicians, scientists and dietitians thereby creating opportunities to build bridges. In order to encourage live participation of post-graduate students, clinicians in training and other young professionals, there will be sessions dedicated to selected oral communications and selected e-posters, as well as an area dedicated to e-Posters.

We are delighted to organize the 2020 SPDM Annual Symposium and very much look forward to your participation.

Daniel Costa Gomes

2020 Symposium Chairperson
