14th International VHL Medical/Research Symposium

October 29-31, 2020 the Netherlands

The Netherlands, October 2020 Welcome to the 14th International VHL Medical Research Symposium, which was supposed to be held in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic, has moved to a Virtual format this year.

 We are really excited by the enthusiasm this research community has generated during the nearly three decades of these biannual meetings. It was spectacular that the work in part was recognised by the award of the 2019 Nobel Prize for Medicine to our Keynote speaker Bill Kaelin, together with esteemed colleagues Gregg Semenza and Peter Ratcliffe. The last two years have seen enormous advances in both understanding the molecular events consequent to VHL inactivation, as well as clinical understanding and treatment of VHL manifestations. We are looking forward to the presentation of new data, that will enable VHL-mutation carriers lead normal lives, and generate insights into the fascinating molecular role that VHL plays in cells. On behalf of the entire organising committee, enjoy the meeting! Rachel Giles, Chair of the Dutch VHL Organisation and Thera Links, Chair of the Dutch Working Group for VHL Specialists
