Title of Collaborative Activity:

Acute Flaccid Myelitis (AFM) Workshop Planning Committee

Description of Collaborative Activity:

This workshop (planned for May 2020) will bring together research scientists, clinicians, patient advocacy groups, and representatives from relevant organizations to discuss the state-of-the-science for AFM and GBS. The meeting will highlight similarities between the two diseases and facilitate cross-pollination of ideas to advance research, diagnostics, and therapy development for both. Particularly for NICHD, the gaps identified for diagnosis, treatment and management of AFM and it’s consequences in children would inform potential development of future initiatives to address these.
