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.
Third Genome Dynamics in the Neurosciences Conference, Sunday, July 18, 2010 - Thursday, July 22, 2010
Location: The Hilton Metropole, Brighton, England
Description: The goal of this meeting was to integrate basic processes of DNA damage signaling and repair and clinical aspects of neurological and neurodegenerative disease. The program was designed to bring together leading scientists with primary interests in DNA damage signaling with those working in specific related neurodegenerative disease areas as a means for integrating these fields. It was anticipated that this would generate insights into how normal processes of genome maintenance in the brain contribute to the prevention of a wide range of diseases.
2010 Genetic Alliance Annual Conference , Thursday, July 15, 2010 - Sunday, July 18, 2010
Location: Bethesda North Marriott Hotel and Conference Center , Bethesda, Maryland
Description: The Genetic Alliance Annual Conference is consistently inspirational and enables partnership among all stakeholders: advocates and community leaders, health and industry professionals, policymakers and academicians.
Neural Interfaces Conference 2010 , Monday, June 21, 2010 - Tuesday, June 22, 2010
Location: Long Beach Convention Center, Long Beach, California
Description: The goal of the workshop was to present state-of-the-art technological advances to both the neural prosthesis and deep brain stimulation (DBS) communities while encouraging interaction between these two groups to develop new collaborations to create therapies for human use. In addition, inclusion and showcasing of trainees was an important goal. Student poster presentations fostered scientific exchange, networking, and communication among registrants and 20 travel awards were given to qualifying undergraduate, graduate or medical students, and postdoctoral fellows. One such interaction between student and principal investigator (PI) has resulted in the student becoming a postdoctoral fellow in the PI’s laboratory.
Third NIH Workshop on Gaucher Disease and Parkinsonism, Thursday, April 08, 2010 - Friday, April 09, 2010
Location: NIH- the Cloister, Bethesda, Maryland
Description: Workshop goals were to (1) determine the appropriate human, animal, or cell-based models to better understand this correlation; (2) explore the mechanisms and/or pathways involved; and (3) establish international collaborations to enhance progress in the field and to make recommendations for future study.
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.
FTD Workshop to Develop CDEs and Pathology Data Elements for Future Clinical Studies, Tuesday, February 02, 2010 - Wednesday, February 03, 2010
Location: Miami, Florida
Description: The goals of the workshop were to (1) establish a protocol for standardized collection of first and serial neurological and neuropsychological data on FTD patients within the interested ADCs; (2) establish FTD-specific pathology data elements and determine whether the ADC pathology protocol addresses these elements or modification is needed for a FTD-specific pathology module; (3) develop a plan to integrate FTD data into the NACC data structure and allow linkage to other ADCs; (4) develop a mechanism to roll out a new data plan within the ADC community; and (5) form a clinical task force for FTD to monitor collection of standardized data.
