The Friedreich’s Ataxia Research Alliance (FARA) and the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) would like to invite young investigators—graduate/medical students and post-doctoral fellows—to submit abstracts for the 10th Annual Friedreich’s Ataxia Symposium to be held on October 15-16, 2017 in King of Prussia, PA. This one-day symposium provides patients and families with up-to-date clinical information on therapeutic approaches and current research being conducted in the field of Friedreich’s ataxia. We begin with a reception on the evening of Sunday, October 15, and talks throughout the day on Monday, October 16, 2017. Posters will be up throughout the meeting with specific poster sessions during the reception on the 15th and breakfast and lunch on the 16th. We encourage you to share this information with young investigators in your lab who would benefit from gaining greater exposure to the FA community in addition to the experience of presenting their research data.
