2020 has been quite a year. I know we are all disappointed about not being able to all be together in person for our 6th Annual SCN8A Clinician, Researcher, and Family Gathering in December. However, with the help of John Schreiber, Manoj Patel, and TCSF's volunteer team, we are planning a virtual Gathering so that we can convene as a community to share our work and updates from the last year. The Gathering is tentatively scheduled for Dec 4.
The Gathering platform will require a slightly different approach. We will also be piloting a new approach for sharing research--we invite all of you to submit abstracts for consideration for a panel discussion at our main professionals and families event as well as in-platform poster sessions.
Abstract Submission Information:
1. We are requesting abstracts detailing your SCN8A-related research. This is a great opportunity to share your recent scientific work and observations on SCN8A with the SCN8A community.
2. Abstracts should be 300 words or less (yes, please feel free to use your AES abstracts!)
3. Submit to me at firstname.lastname@example.org by September 30th, 2020
Looking forward to "seeing" all of you in December!
