"This was my first PNS meeting and was very impressed! It was amazing to learn about groundbreaking work in hereditary neuropathies and the potential future treatments for hTTR amyloidosis and CMT. I specially enjoyed the presentations on the clinical trials that are starting or about the start and the possibility of being part of them! I hope to attend the meeting every year!"
