The Guthrie Symposium on newborn screening and metabolic disorders is a half-day educational event honoring the life and legacy of Robert Guthrie, MD, PhD, and his attachment to the University at Buffalo and Oishei Children's Hospital.
This annual symposium is a forum for world-renowned physicians and scientists to share their knowledge with providers, families and community stakeholders. Our speakers will discuss pioneering research and clinical practices in genetic and metabolic disorders.
