Hosted in a different part of the world every few years since 1980, each A-T Workshop is organized by local volunteers, who have an opportunity to be recognized for their leadership in A-T/ATM research.
ATW2019 will be held at the Houston Methodist Research Institute in Houston, TX. The Houston Methodist Research Institute offers an experienced and helpful staff who have hosted numerous international meetings on the premises. The institute is located at 6670 Bertner Avenue, Houston, TX 77040.
