Cure SMA is excited to reunite the SMA community for the 2021 Annual SMA Conference in Austin, Texas from Thursday, June 10 – Sunday, June 13, 2021.

If the unexpected circumstances of 2020 have shown us anything, it is how impactful this one week of the year is for families, individuals, researchers, and medical professionals in the SMA community. We cannot wait to welcome you back as we gather next June in Texas. The JW Marriott Austin will host the 2021 Annual SMA Conference and the Annual International SMA Research & Clinical Care Meeting. The hotel is centrally located in Austin’s lively downtown neighborhood with a variety of restaurants, live music, and entertainment venues.

Each year, Cure SMA sponsors a conference to bring together the leading SMA researchers, clinicians, individuals, and families affected by SMA. As always, the SMA Research & Clinical Care Meeting runs alongside the Annual SMA Conference. We have been hosting the Annual SMA Conference since 1988, and it has become a weekend filled with a wide variety of activities, including the following:

  • Educational workshops.
  • Keynote sessions with leading researchers and clinicians.
  • Family-friendly poster session.
  • Memorable children’s program.
  • Meet and greet with a family fun fest.
  • Teen and adult social activities.
  • PJ party and movie night.
  • Dance party.

This is the largest conference in the world for those affected by SMA, and for those involved in providing support and care for SMA patients. It brings together researchers, healthcare professionals, affected individuals, and families to network, learn, and collaborate. All these activities provide opportunities for individuals and families to connect and interact, while also receiving first-hand updates from researchers and clinicians.

More details about the 2021 Annual SMA Conference and SMA Research & Clinical Care Meeting will be announced in the upcoming months and registration will launch in the fall of 2020. We look forward to seeing you in Austin!
