Welcome to the 2023 CTX International Scientific Meeting being held on August 27 and August 28 in Jerusalem, Israel. On behalf of the CTX Alliance and the organizing committee, it is our pleasure to invite you to the first international scientific meeting exclusively dedicated to cerebrotendinous xanthomatosis (CTX). Our goal is to catalyze much-needed international basic research and clinical collaborations for CTX and to advance our understanding for improved outcomes for CTX patients and their families.

Our comprehensive meeting agenda features lectures and discussions from renowned CTX researchers, medical professionals, and patient advocacy group leaders from approximately a dozen countries. Never has there been an international gathering of this many CTX experts at one meeting. We are honored and excited to provide this opportunity to foster international collaboration for this rare disease. This meeting is being held as a satellite meeting prior to the 2023 Society for the Study of Inborn Errors of Metabolism (SSIEM) Annual Symposium scheduled for August 29 – September 1.

The CTX Alliance is grateful to the SSIEM for providing the opportunity to host this meeting and registration is open to all stakeholders, including patients and industry representatives.  We anticipate many of our attendees will be leaders in patient care, biochemical and genetic diagnosis, research, nutrition, pharmacy, allied health professionals, and palliative care.  It is our intention to make attending this satellite CTX meeting a convenient and educational opportunity for those already attending the SSIEM.

We look forward to meeting you in Jerusalem!
