Incorporated in 1975, The National MPS Society’s goal is to ultimately find a cure for MPS and ML disorders. The National MPS Society will achieve this goal by supporting research, providing support to individuals and their families affected by an MPS or ML disease, promoting public and professional awareness, and significantly increasing participation by regions. Mucopolysaccharidoses (MPS) and Mucolipidoses (ML) are genetic lysosomal storage disorders caused by the body’s inability to produce specific enzymes. Since 1986 the Society has held annual conferences throughout the United States. These conferences bring families and professionals together to learn and share information on the care and management of the children.
