Annual Family Conference

Our Annual Family Conference and Interactive Workshop on Niemann-Pick Diseases is the largest event in the NPUK calendar, bringing together affected individuals, families, friends, health and research professionals under one roof.

Each and every year when we come together we leave with more memories to add to the others made over the years, and each time we look forward to welcoming friends old and new, those newly diagnosed, living with Niemann-Pick or those that have experienced bereavement. This year’s Conference will once again offer the opportunity to hear the latest developments regarding therapies and clinical trials for ASMD Niemann-Pick disease types A and B, and Niemann-Pick disease type C, plus related care issues, breakout sessions and workshops. Individuals, families and friends wishing to attend should get in touch with us by email at: or give us a call on: 0191 415 06 93.

The Interactive Workshop on Niemann-Pick Diseases, an event for professional delegates only, takes place on the Friday (the day before the Annual Family Conference begins). Hosted by Professor Fran Platt, University of Oxford, the meeting features clinical and scientific presentations and workshops on relevant topics, including clinical management, research and potential therapies. Clinicians and health professionals wishing to attend, should please contact the NPUK Central Office directly.

Please note: The above graphic  and Conference programme below is from last year’s Conference branding package, however we are pleased to announce that registration for this year’s NPUK Annual Family Conference & Interactive Workshop on Niemann-Pick Disease 2021, will be open soon. Despite the disappointment we all understandably felt about not being able to hold last year’s meeting in person, we were confident in the programme we developed and were pleased that it ended up being a worthwhile experience for our community; with the same world-renowned speakers, the same dynamic content, and many of the same opportunities for interaction between families, friends and professionals that we have offered for over 25 years. This year’s event will hopefully be provided “in-person”, with digital/online content also available, we will keep you all posted on updates.
