Conferences


ORDR-Sponsored Conferences

  • The Spectrum of Caregiving and Palliative Care in Rare Diseases, August 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.

  • 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.

  • David W. Smith Workshop on Malformations and Morphogenesis, Friday, August 27, 2010 - Wednesday, September 01, 2010
    Location: Alderbrook Resort, Union, Washington
    Description: The goal of the Smith Workshop was to bring together a diverse group of clinicians and scientists to advance general understanding of human dysmorphogenesis as well as normal morphogenesis. To meet this goal, the descriptions of new syndromes, more detailed phenotypic characterization of already established syndromes, studies of the natural history of human malformations, development of an understanding of the molecular and genetic mechanisms of normal and abnormal morphogenesis, and understanding the role that embryogenesis and organogenesis play in the development of human malformations were the central topics of this meeting. The organizers placed emphasis on the interplay between the environment and genes as the causes of human birth defects.

  • Craniofacial Morphogenesis and Tissue Regeneration Gordon Research Conference, Sunday, April 11, 2010 - Friday, April 16, 2010
    Location: Il Ciocco Hotel and Resort, Barga , Italy
    Description: The goal of this conference was to advance the field of craniofacial morphogenesis and regeneration and treatment of rare craniofacial diseases by communicating the most recent findings from the field. The interdisciplinary group of scientists working in basic science and translational fields encouraged cross-fertilization of ideas, experimental systems, animal models, and data sets for solving critical questions concerning craniofacial biology, ultimately leading to identification of practical strategies for treatment and prevention of a broad range of diseases affecting head structures. The conference encouraged new investigators and trainees to enter the field and to form collaborations with more established scientists. The conference also identified linkages between basic, translational, and clinical researchers and charted a plan of action for the future of the field.

  • 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.
