ORDR-Sponsored Conferences

  • Joubert Syndrome Biennial Conference: Advancing Translational Ciliopathy Research, Enhancing Clinical Care, Monday, October 21, 2013 - Tuesday, October 22, 2013
    Location: Westin Boston Waterfront Hotel, Boston, MA
    Description: The development of updated healthcare recommendations will be a valuable product from the conference, as currently, there is little comprehensive evidence about the natural history of JSRD available to guide clinical management decisions, and in particular, the necessary frequency of screening for retinal, renal, and hepatic complications, which can be life-threatening. In addition, development of a research agenda going forward will be a valuable asset. As a result of the 2011 Scientific Conference, it was recommended that a study of mortality in JSRD was necessary; investigators have since partnered with the JSRDF to launch a campaign “Mortality matters” to identify the causes of death for those children and adults with JSRD who have died from its complications. In addition, there has been rapid progress in identifying genetic causes for JSRD, with now 19 documented genes, a significant increase over what was known about the genetic causes in 2011. This genetic information is providing some windows into genotype-phenotype correlations.

  • 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.

  • VI International Conference on Rare Diseases and Orphan Drugs (ICORD 2010): Global Approach to Accessibility in Rare Diseases, Orphan Drugs and Neglected Diseases , Thursday, March 18, 2010 - Saturday, March 20, 2010
    Location: Palais Rouge Convention Center, Palermo, Buenos Aires, Argentina
    Description: For the first time, the VI International Conference on Rare Diseases and Orphan Drugs (ICORD 2010) was convened in the southern hemisphere in agreement with its aim of globalization of rare diseases research and orphan products development activities.
