About the event:

International Congress of DAO Deficiency, to be held 4 November 2021, in virtual format.

End goal of the event is to reinforce knowledge of DAO Deficiency through a complete programme of scientific sessions, with experts of worldwide renown. With a forward-looking approach, we will address both diagnosis and treatment, as well as how knowledge of DAO Deficiency has led to a paradigm shift in the field of medical nutrition.

The event will be held entirely online, as required by this exceptional situation caused by the pandemic. However, this way we will also be able to make our shared knowledge and experiences available to professionals all around the world, saving on costs and travel, and reducing our ecological footprint.

Technology will make it possible for guests to attend all conferences through an immersive, comprehensive experience. In addition to the extensive medical and scientific programme, the exhibition with 3D stands, and online interaction with guests, congress participants and speakers will provide a one-of-a-kind stage with services just like at a face-to-face event. All in real time.
