  About the Society

This scientific association was founded in 2004. It was created, 15 years before, by a study group of paediatricians and biochemists. They were aware of the frequency of these orphan diseases in our country, which is marked by a high rate of consanguinity.
The main aims of this association are to:
  1. Improve awareness of medical communities and scientists involved in the diagnosis and management of Inherited errors of metabolism (IEM).
  2. Set-up and sustain a strategy of continuous education, training and research in IEM.
  3. Inform patients and families directly or through patient’s associations and mass media about new knowledges and therapeutic possibilities in IEM.
  4. Coordinate between professionals involved in IEM and health authorities concerning social and health problems related to IEM (ie: prevention and systematic neonatal screening).

Scientific Meetings
The Association organizes:

  1. A Metabolic School every two years (11 Schools until now).
  2. Two Scientific Meetings every year (one National and one Regional).
  3. Phenylketonuria Days (7 days until now).
