The Jain Foundation Dysferlin conference is the only meeting of its kind and focuses specifically on dysferlin and the related diseases caused by mutations in dysferlin.  The Dysferlin conference includes presentations from leading international scientists on the most up to date information (mostly unpublished) regarding the state of dysferlin research, significant time for discussions and collaborations, as well as various poster sessions.  We encourage researchers and clinicians interested in dysferlin research or with dysferlin related data to register and submit an abstract.  Attendance is limited and all registrations must be approved by the Jain Foundation.  Preference will be given to those giving oral or poster presentations.
