Every year, the National MPS Society produces an annual report. This report outlines key fundraising efforts and the work of our amazing committees. It also details the grants we have subsidized and invested, as well as our financials.
This year’s science sessions at the Society’s 35th Annual Family Conference marked the first year of a full concurrent scientific session featuring more than a dozen speakers from the United States, Australia, and Europe and a diversity of presentations. We heard from six scientists who serve on our Scientific Advisory Board (SAB); 10 speakers were past, current, or new recipients of Society Innovative Research Grants.
