The PNS Annual Meeting is the place to learn about the latest international research across specialties in peripheral neuropathy. It is an opportunity for you to have one-on-one discussions with experts in the field and connect with your peers from all over the world. During the Plenary Talks, Platform Presentations, and Saturday Education Course junior and senior scientists of various backgrounds teach about the most current and ground-breaking developments in the field, including Charcot-Marie-Tooth and Related Neuropathies, Inflammatory Neuropathy, pain, Diabetes and more. The meeting is held annually at stunning locations alternating around the world.

What the hillside city does possess is unwavering authenticity, a distinct cuisine and language, and a ferocious past: From the 11th century to the 18th, it was one of the four great maritime republics of what is now Italy. A tightly packed urban patchwork, Genoa invites — in fact, it requires — you to have your own experience. We look forward to welcoming you to Genoa, Italy!

"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!"
