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.
18th International RUNX Workshop, Sunday, August 14, 2011 - Wednesday, August 17, 2011
Location: Eleanor Roosevelt College, University of California, San Diego, La Jolla, CA
Description: Based on the long-standing interactive and inter-disciplinary traditions of the 17 previous RUNX workshops, the organizers anticipate that the 18th International RUNX Workshop will offer excellent opportunities for the cross-pollination of ideas and the development of new collaborations in this rapidly expanding field.
David W. Smith Workshop on Malformations and Morphogenesis, Friday, August 27, 2010 - Wednesday, September 01, 2010
Location: Alderbrook Resort, Union, Washington
Description: The goal of the Smith Workshop was to bring together a diverse group of clinicians and scientists to advance general understanding of human dysmorphogenesis as well as normal morphogenesis. To meet this goal, the descriptions of new syndromes, more detailed phenotypic characterization of already established syndromes, studies of the natural history of human malformations, development of an understanding of the molecular and genetic mechanisms of normal and abnormal morphogenesis, and understanding the role that embryogenesis and organogenesis play in the development of human malformations were the central topics of this meeting. The organizers placed emphasis on the interplay between the environment and genes as the causes of human birth defects.
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 RUNX Transcription Factors in Development and Disease, Sunday, August 16, 2009 - Wednesday, August 19, 2009
Location: St. Anne’s College, University of Oxford, Oxford, England
Description: Historically, RUNX workshops have led to new collaborations, stimulated the exchange of reagents and, more specifically, led to a unified nomenclature in the field. Although it was hard to predict what the precise outcome of this meeting would be, it was certain to move the field forward and increase collaborative efforts.
