15th INTERNATIONAL SKELETAL DYSPLASIA SOCIETY MEETING
SANTIAGO DE CHILE
AUGUST 24-27, 2022
The International Skeletal Dysplasia Society, ISDS is a non-profit organization, founded almost 30 years ago. The principal aim of the Society is to promote scientific progress in the field of skeletal dysplasias and dysostoses and related topics (which are genetic bone conditions).
To this aim, the society organizes meetings on a two-year basis. The meetings are conducted in a friendly and familial way to promote networking and exchange of expertise. The scientific program of the meetings includes advances in the clinical, radiological, genetic, biochemical, and molecular characterization of skeletal dysplasia, as well as advances in management of individuals affected by skeletal dysplasia and dysostoses.
Since the beginning the meetings have been held in sites on different continents, being the last one in Oslo, Norway 2019.
