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.
Autoinflammation 2013: The Seventh International Congress of FMF and Autoinflammatory Diseases, Wednesday, May 22, 2013 - Sunday, May 26, 2013
Location: Lausanne, Switzerland
Description: The goals of this meeting include the exchange of clinical and scientific information regarding the autoinflammatory diseases. This is likely to result in improvements in the diagnosis and treatment of these diseases. Past Congresses have resulted in new scientific collaborations, development of registries for patients with specific autoinflammatory disorders, and the initiation of multicenter clinical trials.
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.
Gene Transfer and Rare Diseases Workshop, Thursday, September 13, 2012
Location: Rockville Hilton, Rockville, Maryland
Description: The NIH Office of Biotechnology Activities and Office of Rare Disease Research, NCATS, are co-sponsoring a workshop to discuss the advances in and challenges of gene transfer for rare diseases. There have been recent promising clinical successes in gene transfer protocols for rare diseases, such as retinal degeneration, hemophilia, and immune disorders. Investigators will discuss their results to date and opportunities and challenges for extending these successes to other similar rare diseases. The panel discussions will focus on strategies for maximizing opportunities for data sharing or platform development.
Treatment Strategies for Neuromuscular Diseases: The Challenge of Recruitment, Monday, September 20, 2010 - Wednesday, September 22, 2010
Location: Beaver Hollow Conference Center, Java Center, NY
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.
Workshop on Inflammatory Myopathy, Wednesday, April 05, 2000 - Thursday, April 06, 2000
Location: NIH Campus, Bethesda, MD
Description: The goal of this workshop was to provide a forum for researchers in the areas of myositis, muscle biology, and immunology to review the current status of research on inflammatory myopathies and explore potential new avenues of research.
