The World Muscle Society Annual International Congress is the foremost event in the field of neuromuscular disorders. 

Each year, around 1,000 delegates from around the world come together to share the latest science in the field, network, share ideas and enhance the global knowledge of many of these life limiting diseases. 

As a newly started PhD-student in the beginning of my scientific career, to attend the Congress was a great opportunity and honour to listen and talk to the most renowned researchers in the neuromuscular field and other fellow peers, which definitely further encouraged my interest in the field and will help launching my own scientific career at this early stage.
