Conferences


ORDR-Sponsored Conferences

  • The Spectrum of Caregiving and Palliative Care in Rare Diseases, Winter 2014
    Location: NIH Natcher Conference Center, Bethesda, MD
    Description: The findings and recommendations resulting from the Workshop will provide guidance to the extramural community as well as to NINR and other Institutes, Offices (e.g., ORDR), and agencies in developing strategies for advancing the science of palliative care and caregiving in rare disease and research programs. It is anticipated that a funding opportunity announcement will result from the Workshop.

  • 18th Annual International Spinal Muscular Atrophy Research Group Meeting, Thursday, June 12, 2014 - Saturday, June 14, 2014
    Location: Gaylord National , National Harbor, MD
    Description: <p>The overall goal of the meeting is to provide a venue for researchers to share unpublished data and to develop collaborations, with the intent of accelerating the discovery of a treatment for this devastating disease.<span>&nbsp; </span>In addition, the specific aims for the conference are:<span>&nbsp; </span>1.To enable open communication of early, unpublished scientific data, accelerating the pace of research. 2.To provide a forum to discuss timely topics in SMA openly with the entire research community. 3. To create a sense of community among SMA researchers, resulting in productive research partnerships.</p>

  • 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.

  • Translational Neuromuscular Research, Diverse Diseases, Convergent Themes, Monday, September 19, 2011 - Wednesday, September 21, 2011
    Location: Beaver Hollow Conference Center, Java Center, NY
    Description: The infrastructure for this conference was developed by the MSG, whose investigators have worked for the past 10 years to secure extramural funding and to develop outcome measures for clinical research/experimental muscle and other neuromuscular diseases. The goal of this conference is to help identify commonalities across therapy development in neuromuscular disease to help ensure that lessons learned in any one disease are disseminated across the neuromuscular community.

  • 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.

  • 14th International Spinal Muscular Atrophy Research Group Meeting, Thursday, June 24, 2010 - Sunday, June 27, 2010
    Location: Santa Clara, California
    Description: The overall meeting goal was to bring together junior and established spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) research experts from around the world to share unpublished data and foster a spirit of communication and collaboration. The majority of the leading investigators in SMA attend this conference each year. The conference also brought in young and new researchers into the SMA community, including those located internationally, who do not have opportunities to interact with the recognized thought leaders in this area. It arguably represents the best networking opportunity in the SMA field.

  • The Ottawa Conference on New Directions in Biology and Disease of Skeletal Muscle, Wednesday, May 05, 2010 - Thursday, May 06, 2010
    Location: Ottawa, Ontario, Canada
    Description: The conference highlighted current developments in muscle biology, disease, and therapy with presentations by leading international researchers.

  • 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.
