  • Novel Molecular Mechanisms of Neuromuscular Disease: Implications for Therapy, Monday, September 16, 2013 - Wednesday, September 18, 2013
    Location: Oxford, England
    Description: This conference will bring new collaborative opportunities and substantive scientific information to neuromuscular investigators. It will provide senior investigators, NIH program staff, and patient advocacy group/foundation representatives opportunities to meet with junior/trainee investigators who are in the process of developing careers in clinical/translational investigation. Trainees will interact with leaders in the field as they discuss innovative methodology designed to meet the challenges of studies of uncommon diseases and provide perspective on clinical studies in various phases of development. Younger investigators will be profiled during a hot topics session. Furthermore, the poster sessions, the discussions after each session, the meals and other informal settings offer them a chance to question and to present their own ideas.
