We are pleased to announce the 4th International Meeting on Laminopathies, taking place in Madrid, Spain on May 9-12, 2023. The meeting will be open to researchers, physicians and patients from around the world with the main goal of synergistically exchange knowledge and ideas to better understand laminopathies and help develop new therapies. As in previous editions celebrated in Marseille, Bologna, and London, the meeting will include sessions focused on molecular mechanisms, clinical aspects, disease-modeling, as well as therapeutic strategies.
Although we have a preliminary agenda with exciting speakers, we are expecting more contributions from research and clinical groups as well as patient associations. The meeting will be an extraordinary opportunity to share your work on laminopathies in front of the best possible audience.
Please visit the meeting's website (https://www.laminopathy2023.com/) or send us an email ([email protected]) for more information. You can also check for updates by following our Twitter account (https://twitter.com/IMLaminopathies).
Registration and abstract submission will open in January 2023. We encourage you to save the date and consider contributing to the meeting.
Thank you for helping us spread the word about the 4th International Meeting on Laminopathies. We look forward to seeing you in Madrid.

The UETeM presented several research lines at the SGENM 2022 last week in Ourense (Spain):
- Mecanismos moleculares de la acantosis nigricans en los síndromes de Rabson-Mendenhall y Berardinelli-Seip
- Papel del etanol en la lipomatosis en pacientes lipodistróficas con variantes en los genes LMNA y MFN2
- Avances del nuevo modelo murino de la Encefalopatía de Celia (PELD)
Silvia Cobelo-Gómez, a talented predoctoral student of the UETeM group, won the prize for the best basic oral communication at the SGENM 2022 with her work: "Avances en el nuevo modelo murino para la Encefalopatía de Celia (PELD)". Congratulations!
This year we once again had the privilege of having the most outstanding international experts in this heterogeneous group of disorders that encompass lipodystrophies, each one with its singularities, associated comorbidities, specific therapeutic approaches and impact on quality of life. It was successfully oranized by AELIP and sponsored by Amryt and Regeneron.

Natural course and comorbidities of lipodystrophy syndromes in Spain
Lipodystrophy syndromes constitute a heterogeneous group of rare diseases characterised by the selective loss of adipose tissue, which leads to impaired insulin signalling and other cellular functions, giving rise to metabolic complications that contribute to higher mortality rates in these patients. However, the exact natural history of these syndromes is not well documented, leading to long delays in diagnosis or misdiagnosis. This thesis constitutes the first real-life study with the objetive of evaluating the natural course and associated comorbidities througout the lives of patients with generalised and partial lipodystrophy (both acquired and congenital) in Spain in an effort to contribute to increasing knowledge of these rare syndromes.
David Araújo-Vilar receives the E-nnova Health 21 award for the project "Artificial intelligence diagnosis of rare lipodystrophies".
Prof. David Araújo-Vilar participated today in the Lipodystrophy master class for Middle East countries.
The event was organized by the Arab Society for Paediatric Endocrinology and Diabetes.
