Dear Colleagues and Friends,
On behalf of the Scientific Organising Committee and of the Italian Society for the Study of Inborn Metabolic Diseases and Newborn Screening (SIMMESN), it is a great pleasure to welcome you in Rome from September 6th to 9th for the 2016 SSIEM Annual Symposium.
The theme of the scientific program is “Metabolic pathways, cellular networks and beyond”: the objective of the symposium is to define the future challenges in the field of inborn errors of metabolism and to improve the networking between clinicians, laboratory scientists and basic research.
The location that will host the Congress, Palazzo dei Congressi, is one of the most celebrated and representative examples of rationalist architecture. Designed by architect Adalberto Libera, it is the ideal venue for any type of event. Located south-east of the city, it is near the subway and the two major International Airports (Fiumicino and Ciampino).
About the city of Rome, it is one of the most important tourist destinations of the world, due to the incalculable immensity of its archaeological and artistic treasures that you will enjoy during the free evening and well known for its cuisine based on a gastronomic culture heavy reliance on traditional products that you will have the chance to taste during the Congress.
I hope you will enjoy our SSIEM 2016 in Rome.
I wish you a great stay.
Carlo Dionisi Vici
