Largest gathering of NF scientists and clinicians
First held in 1985 as a roundtable of 20 participants, the NF Conference is now the most important scholarly gathering of the NF research and clinical communities. The NF Conference is a global event, attracting more than 300 participants worldwide across a wide range of scientific disciplines, from research and clinical backgrounds, all focused on improving outcomes for patients with neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1), neurofibromatosis type 2 (NF2) and schwannomatosis. The NF Conference is a critical forum for consensus building and advancing basic, translational, and clinical research in NF and related fields, while fostering collaborations within and beyond the NF community. Importantly, the NF Conference is a key venue for attracting and growing new investigators in NF research and clinical care.
