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.
Cicatricial Alopecia Research Symposium 2011: Lipids, Inflammation and Stem Cells, Thursday, October 27, 2011 - Friday, October 28, 2011
Location: Bethesda, MD
Description: The goals of the 2011 symposium are to: 1) provide a forum that facilitates discussion among scientists and clinicians regarding emerging areas of research and technologies applicable to cicatricial alopecia; 2) disseminate the research and clinical progress that has been made in the last five years, 3) foster collaborations among scientists and clinicians in cicatricial alopecia and related fields; 4) encourage the cross-fertilization of disciplines to stimulate new ideas and unique research approaches; 5) propose novel ways of solving current problems in cicatricial alopecia; and 6) contribute to the development of new investigators, particularly M.D. and Ph.D. students, residents and post-doctoral fellows including members of racial/ethnic minority groups. The symposium will facilitate the exchange of ideas and information between laboratory and clinical researchers to accelerate the translation of basic scientific discoveries into clinical applications.
