  • Gordon Research Conferences CAG Triplet Repeat Disorders and the associated Graduate Research Seminar, Saturday, June 22, 2013 - Friday, June 28, 2013
    Location: Waterville Valley Resort, Waterville Valley, NH
    Description: The 2013 Gordon Research Conference on CAG Triplet Repeat Disorders will bring together top scientists from around the world to discuss high-impact, interdisciplinary research on CAG Triplet Repeat Disorders. The objective of the conference is to promote scientific discussion and facilitate interdisciplinary exchange by bringing leading researchers in the field together with a broad range of experts representing; clinicians, diagnosticians, neurobiologists, pathologists, geneticists and molecular biologists.

  • 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.
