Ends on

The Congenital Hyperinsulinism International (CHI) Research Conference will be held virtually on Saturday, September 18, 2021. We are seeking proposals for presentations for the conference sessions from researchers, medical professionals, patient advocates, and other experts on research topics that would be of interest to the HI community. We are particularly interested in topics that identify the gaps in structure, knowledge, expertise (human resources), tools, and funding, to treat HI more effectively and ultimately find a cure. We welcome completed work, work in progress, or presentations on proposed projects. The conference session topics will be organized around the CHI Collaborative Research Network (CRN) workstream topics: 

  • Diagnostics
  • Glucose Monitoring
  • Medical and Surgical Treatments
  • Care Guidelines/Centers of Excellence
  • Genetics
  • Clinical Trials/Industry Engagement
  • What is HI: Nomenclature and Inclusion

Submissions are due by August 15, 2021 at 11:59pm EST.

We use Submittable to accept and review our submissions.
