3rd International Workshop on Klinefelter Syndrome, Trisomy X, and XYY

We would like to invite you to participate in the 3rd International Workshop on Klinefelter Syndrome, Trisomy X, and XYY, that will take place in Leiden, the Netherlands, from 12-14 September 2022 (new date).

International Workshop theme: 'A life-course perspective'

Previous international workshops were organised in Copenhagen (2010) and Munster (2016). The Third International Workshop will take place in Leiden in 2022, the year that Leiden will be the European City of Science. In this 3rd International Workshop we would especially like to share new insights from a ‘life-course perspective’, addressing the impact of an extra X or Y chromosome throughout life. The life-course approach focuses on a healthy start to life and targets the needs of individuals at critical periods throughout their lifetime. It promotes timely investments to improve outcomes and quality of life. 

Renowned experts have been invited to speak at the workshop, but the 3-day event will also give young scientists and clinicians an opportunity to present their recent work during oral presentations and poster sessions. The workshop will have a hybrid format, including both in-person and virtual attendees.

We are looking forward to welcoming you to this unique event to be held in Leiden in 2022!

On behalf the organising commitee: Hanna Swaab, Martin den Heijer, Sabine Hannema, Kimberly Kuiper, Evelien Urbanus, Nienke Bouw, Lia ten Brink and Sophie van Rijn
