About the Society
AECOM is the Spanish Society for inborn errors of metabolism (Asociación Española para el Estudio de los Errores Congénitos del Metabolismo), founded in 1999.
The aim of our society is to enable interaction between the different professionals involved in the diagnosis, treatment, follow-up and research in IEM. It includes paediatricians, neuropaediatricians, gastroenterologists, biochemists, dieticians and other scientists with a common interest in improving knowledge in IEM. We organize our national meeting every two years.
AECOM promotes and supports the research, the scientific cooperation, and the education and training in the diagnosis and care in the fields of Inborn Metabolic Diseases and Newborn Screening.
The Society pursues these aims through all its activities, including Scientific Meetings and Workshops, Working Groups, Guidelines and Protocols (National therapeutic protocols for the main with open access in our web), and several training activities every year.
AECOM, as the Spanish national reference association in EIM acknowledges the Society for the Study of Inborn Errors of Metabolism (SSIEM) as International Reference Society.
