Greetings from the President

Dear Colleagues,
As President of the Scientific Program Committee of the Joint Congresses of Mediterranean Society of Myology and the Italian association of Myology, I warmly welcome you to both events and to beautiful Naples.
Knowing that the participants will have different requirements, backgrounds, and interests, we have tried to organize an interesting, and scientifically diverse program. We emphasize both the basic science and clinical aspects of neuromuscular diseases. We trust that the richness of the program covering the newest developments in diagnosis, pathogenesis and treatment of a wide spectrum of neuromuscular diseases will provide an enriching experience.
As it is the custom for more than 20 years, on the occasion of the XII MSM Congress, the 2015 "G. Conte" awards for basic and clinical sciences will be awarded to two scientists who will received the most votes in the nominations. And now, let the sessions begin!
Enjoy the Congresses!

Prof. Giovanni Nigro
