Our Congress Organisers
The societies for MPS and related disorders are patient driven organizations that were founded as early as the 1980s by parents of affected MPS patients. The main tasks of the MPS societies are to provide advice, guidance and support to patients and their relatives as well as networking, especially with physicians and scientists, and international cooperation.
Representing the societies, the country representatives (photo from left to right) Michaela Weigl (Austria), Fredi Wiesbauer (Switzerland) and Carmen Kunkel (Germany) are organizing the MPS Congress 2024 in Würzburg. Together with the scientific management, they are inviting representatives of research & industry, treating physicians, but above all patients with their families from all over the world to an open exchange.
