About the Venue

Lancaster… Successful conferences start with a tailor-made conference facility.

Join us for the 24th ESGLD Workshop to learn of achievements thus far, and glimpse into the future of lysosomal disease research and therapies. Workshop topics include:

–   Lysosome Function
–   Lysosomal Pathology
–   Therapies

The graduate course, held immediately before the workshop is an opportunity for postdocs, PhD students and clinical fellows who are new to the lysosomal disease field to be taught about the fundamentals of lysosomal diseases by experts who are at the cutting edge of these areas and to have a chance to informally practice presenting their work in a non-challenging environment to their peers. Participants in the graduate course usually go on to attend the workshop afterwards.
