The Global Albinism Alliance and its Scientific Advisory Committee are pleased to announce the 2022 International Scientific Conference on Albinism – ISCA 2022 – that will be held online November 16th–19th 2022.
This conference was conceived as a continuation of the conference series started by the EDA (European Days of Albinism), whose last event was held in November 2020.
The ISCA conference series is a unique international scientific conference gathering participants from all over the world, including researchers, health care providers, students, and albinism organization leaders, all sharing the same interest: to improve the health of those with albinism.
During the four-day event, numerous albinism experts will address the many health concerns of persons with albinism. This includes dermatology, ophthalmology, genetics, therapies, syndromic forms of albinism and more, contributing to a rich and educational event.
A pre-program will be published in mid-Summer. Registration is expected to open at the same time.
