Economic Considerations in the Development of Therapies for Neuromuscular Disease, Sunday, September 21, 2014 - Tuesday, September 23, 2014
Location: Beaver Hollow Conference Center, Java Center, NY
Description: <p>The goals of the conference are:<span> </span>1.) To provide an informal environment away from competing activities for the interaction/ development of collaborations among established investigators and between senior and new/junior investigators, and to present a collaborative environment for new project development among investigators.<span> </span>2.) To offer senior investigators opportunities to determine the appropriateness of sites/investigators to participate in new trials, providing an entry point for junior trainees/investigators to become involved in studies.<span> </span>3.) To provide an opportunity for industry representatives to interact with clinical investigators to discuss collaboration.<span> </span>These discussions will increase investigator involvement with new industry therapeutics.</p>

Weinstein Cardiovascular Development Conference, Thursday, May 07, 2009 - Saturday, May 09, 2009
Location: San Francisco, CA
Description: The intent of the meeting was to advance the overall field of cardiovascular development and congenital heart disease through the sharing of information and the facilitation of collaborative investigations. An additional goal was to aid the career development of students, postdoctoral fellows, and junior faculty members by providing a forum where they could present their work and interact with established investigators. Because of this emphasis on career development, the conference has strived to keep registration fees low, because higher fees may be prohibitive for students and junior investigators with limited funding. ORDR co-sponsorship in previous years has enabled this goal by allowing the organizers to provide a reduced registration fee for students and fellows.
