  • RDCRN 3rd Conference on Clinical Research for Rare Diseases, Tuesday, October 02, 2012
    Location: Hilton Washington DC/Rockville Hotel & Executive Meeting Center, Rockville, MD
    Description: Clinical research in rare diseases presents a number of challenges and unique issues that are not usually considered in the training of clinical investigators through existing training programs. Goals of the conference include: direct instruction of trainees and new investigators in rare disease research methodology; development of a reusable curriculum/syllabus on rare disease research methodology; and stimulation of ideas regarding the unique issues facing investigators engaged in the study of rare diseases.

  • 2011 Neurobiology of Disease in Children Symposium: Childhood Ataxia, Tuesday, October 25, 2011
    Location: Savannah, GA
    Description: The overall aims of this NDC symposia are to (1) review scientific advances and determine their relevance to current and future clinical practice in child neurology; (2) coordinate efforts among various clinical and basic science disciplines, lay organizations, and the NIH to review current research initiatives and define future directions; and (3) disseminate symposia proceedings to ensure that clinical and basic science disciplines are informed about scientific advances, current research initiatives, and future directions. NDC symposia have brought together clinicians, scientists, caregivers, and NIH program officers to determine how research findings can be translated to enhance clinical understanding and affect clinical practice.
