The International LAM Research Conference & LAMposium is the largest LAM conference in the world, attracting nearly 400 people representing the global LAM community to one location. 

Unfortunately, the 2020 International LAM Research Conference & LAMposium had to be indefinitely postponed out of deep concern for the health and well-being of our community due to the rapidly escalating COVID-19 outbreak. Our annual research conference and LAMposium represents the most important place to celebrate the LAM community and advance our scientific understanding of the disease.  

Since you could not come to us, we have decided to come to you! We are bringing LAMposium directly into your living room in the form of an interactive webinar series called,  LAMposium In Your Living Room. These patient and family education webinars will feature the same LAM experts who were scheduled to present at the 2020 conference.  Please plan to join us for this remarkable opportunity to interact with clinicians, scientists, and caregivers who have volunteered to meet with you, in your living room. Snacks and refreshments recommended! This webinar series will take place once a month throughout the rest of the fall via Zoom.

Registration for LAMposium In Your Living Room is free and open to everyone in the LAM community. Be sure to register using the link below. In addition, please consider making a donation to support the continued mission of The LAM Foundation, which urgently seeks safe and effective treatments, and ultimately a cure, for lymphangioleiomyomatosis (LAM) through advocacy and the funding of promising research.

Our LAMposium In Your Living Room educational series is sponsored by The Dater Foundation.
