In 1999 the TMA held its first international symposium. More than 100 participants from all over the world attended the symposium for the exchange of information regarding research and treatment strategies for rare neuroimmunologic disorders. Clinicians and scientists from around the world participated in the event and Dr. Brian Weinshenker made his first public presentation on the results of his Plasma Exchange Clinical Trial.
Since that first symposium, in partnership with organizations including Johns Hopkins Transverse Myelitis Center, UT Southwestern Transverse Myelitis Center, and Johns Hopkins Project RESTORE, we have continued to support and conduct numerous international symposiums for rare neuroimmunologic disorders. Several of them have been captured on video and are available as a resource to our community below.
These events are extremely important and beneficial for the exchange of information regarding research and treatment strategies as well as providing an opportunity to bring together our membership and medical community. It is our goal to continue providing this valuable resource to our community for many years to come.
