Anticipated goals of the conference and use of results: 1) Organize and conduct a conference that is thematically focused on growing and extending knowledge in HAE; and which become progressively more ambitious over time, reflecting the anticipated advances in research. 2) Identify topics and speakers that will clarify the most promising avenues of investigation, organize the conference in a manner that will optimally support communication between all participants, communicate the resulting discussions to the broader scientific, patient, and pharmaceutical communities. 3) Provide a supportive and constructive forum for young investigators, including female and minority scientists, to present their work and interact with more senior investigators. 4) Increase interest and awareness of HAE research among the wider research community particularly among young investigators in order to recruit new investigators into the field. 5) Ensure equal representation and access of women and underrepresented minority participants.
