The Spectrum of Caregiving and Palliative Care in Rare Diseases, Tuesday, June 09, 2015 - Wednesday, June 10, 2015
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.
XIV International Symposium on Amyloidosis , Sunday, April 27, 2014 - Friday, May 02, 2014
Location: Indianapolis, Indiana
Description: One important goal is to foster interactions between investigators who do not meet regularly outside of this event. Through this conference, experts can share unpublished scientific and clinical information about rare diseases that are hard to treat. A second crucial goal is to stimulate interest in a new generation of investigators by providing generous support for at least 10 junior-level researchers to attend the meeting, giving out awards for the most promising clinical research, the best poster, and the best oral presentation by young investigators, and providing childcare options.
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.
Autoinflammation 2010, the Sixth International Conference on FMF and other Autoinflammatory Diseases, Thursday, September 02, 2010 - Monday, September 06, 2010
Location: Royal Tropical Institute, Amsterdam, The Netherlands
Description: Autoinflammation 2010 was the sixth conference in a series that started more than 10 years ago in Jerusalem. The first conference focused primarily on familial Mediterranean fever (FMF), but soon other hereditary periodic fever syndromes were included. These syndromes were the first to be recognized as autoinflammatory disorders. Recent years have seen an exciting development of scientific knowledge on inflammation and its regulation, and these rare disorders have played a major role in this development. Experts in the field of autoinflammatory disorders, both clinicians and basic scientists, from all over the world met in Amsterdam to exchange research results and opinions on clinical practice. The scientific program included plenary talks, meet-the-expert sessions, interactive workshops, and laptop presentations. Topics ranged from FMF and the other hereditary autoinflammatory diseases to acquired autoinflammatory disorders, such as gout, and from pathogenesis and genetics to clinical phenotype and therapy. Also included was a 1-day program for patients.
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.
