ThinkGenetic is excited to be heading to sunny San Diego, California this February to participate in the annual Lysosomal Disease Network WORLDSymposium. The Symposium is an interdisciplinary forum to explore, exchange, and discuss research, clinical trials, and real life information on the treatment and management of lysosomal conditions. This group of genetic conditions result from errors in the function of the body’s lysosomes. Lysosomes, the recycling center of the cell, contain enzymes that break down complicated molecules used in cell function. When the lysosomes are unable to function, it causes problems with the body’s growth and function. Examples of lysosomal diseases include: Fabry disease; Gaucher disease, Krabbe disease; neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis; Mucolipidosis types II, III, & IV; Mucopolysaccharidosis types I, II, III, & VI; Pompe disease; Sandhoff disease; Tay-Sachs disease; alpha-mannosidosis.
For over a decade the WORLDSymposia has hosted this scientific meeting in order to present the latest findings and clinical data on lysosomal diseases. Since the event is designed to help researchers and clinicians better manage and understand diagnostic options for patients with lysosomal diseases, ThinkGenetic is looking forward to learning about the updates in the field as well as partner with the many healthcare providers, support groups, patients and clinicians who are looking for additional resources.
Utilizing cognitive technology with Watson, ThinkGenetic is a NEW revolutionary genetic disease website. ThinkGenetic is focused on empowering patients by offering personalized information to help shorten diagnosis time and providing guidance for those living with a genetic condition. Members from ThinkGenetic, Inc and ThinkGenetic Foundation will be on-site in San Diego.
