FAST’s Global Science Summit and Gala, which took place on December 3rd – 4th 2021 in Austin, Texas, featured over 20 presentations from researchers, clinicians and pharmaceutical companies. FAST brought together 1,555 community members from all over the world (661 in-person and 894 virtual), with 37 research partners and 28 pharmaceutical companies joining the Summit & Gala events. In addition, the Science Summit presentations were live-streamed in 15 languages with people tuning in from 38 different countries!
The hybrid event featured updates on the latest Angelman syndrome research and clinical trials from the top scientists and industry leaders, educational workshops for caregivers, therapists, and teachers, and helpful vendors that provided Angelman families with goods and services to support their loved ones living with Angelman syndrome. The Global Science Summit and Gala shared a unique look at FAST’s future-focused mission to find effective therapeutics for all individuals living with Angelman syndrome.
