Joan Bladé,
President ISA Symposium 2020
Hematology Department, Hospital Clinic. Barcelona Spain

On behalf of the international Society of Amyloidosis (ISA) and the PETHEMA Foundation it is my pleasure to invite you to the XVII ISA Symposium. It will be held from September 14th to 18th, 2020 in an on-line format. It was planned for March 1-5 in Tarragona as a regular meeting, but it was postponed and later transformed at the virtual form because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Symposium will consist of a five days scientific event. All types of amyloidosis will be covered: TTR (hereditary and wild-type), light chain (AL), AA as well as less frequent forms. There will be key lectures, plenary sessions, industry sponsored symposia, oral presentations plus meet-the-expert sessions and poster exhibition.

This Symposium is attended by all the outstanding researchers in all the fields of amyloidosis plus about 800 delegates particularly interested in these diseases. The ISA 2020 is a unique opportunity to learn on basic biology, early diagnosis and recognition of unusual forms, best prognostication and response assessment, new drug targets and the role of novel agents, including immunotherapy, as well as the updated results from early phase and large randomized clinical trials. Please join us for this exciting conference on amyloidosis.

Welcome to ISA 2020!!!

Joan Bladé
