Familial Adult Myoclonic Epilepsy (FAME) is a rare genetic condition, characterized by the occurrence of cortical tremor, myoclonus, and generalized tonic-clonic seizures inherited in an autosomal dominant fashion.
A funded networking event “1st Workshop on Familial Adult Myoclonic Epilepsy (FAME)” is being organised in Naples, Italy on May 27th-28th.
This event has received funding support from the EJP RD’s Networking Support Scheme (NSS) funding opportunity as part of the 2nd round of funding in September 2020.
The workshop will aim to put together the involved researchers including clinicians, geneticists, molecular biologists, and pharmacologists to discuss the established knowledge, to introduce ongoing and future projects, and to share ideas and resources.
