Fragile X syndrome type 2
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.
Neural Interfaces Conference 2010 , Monday, June 21, 2010 - Tuesday, June 22, 2010
Location: Long Beach Convention Center, Long Beach, California
Description: The goal of the workshop was to present state-of-the-art technological advances to both the neural prosthesis and deep brain stimulation (DBS) communities while encouraging interaction between these two groups to develop new collaborations to create therapies for human use. In addition, inclusion and showcasing of trainees was an important goal. Student poster presentations fostered scientific exchange, networking, and communication among registrants and 20 travel awards were given to qualifying undergraduate, graduate or medical students, and postdoctoral fellows. One such interaction between student and principal investigator (PI) has resulted in the student becoming a postdoctoral fellow in the PI’s laboratory.
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.
Interdisciplinary Training Conference in Developmental Disabilities, Monday, March 15, 2010 - Tuesday, March 16, 2010
Location: Annapolis, Maryland
Description: The goal of this meeting was to mentor the career development of a “hybrid” junior scientist working in developmental disabilities research, including those within T32 training programs as well as other training programs. The focus was on pre- and postdoctoral students (scholars-in-training) because interdisciplinary training after scientific formation appears to be less effective in nurturing biobehavioral scientists with an integrated focus.
Outcome Measures for Clinical Trials in Children with Fragile X Syndrome – Part II, Thursday, November 05, 2009 - Friday, November 06, 2009
Location: Bethesda Marriott Pooks Hill, Bethesda, MD
Description: The goals of the first meeting were to (1) describe outcome measures for safety and efficacy when treating children with FXS, (2) assess validation of those measures for clinical studies, and (3) describe approaches for preclinical toxicology studies to define efficacy and safety.
Workshop on Reproduction and the Fragile X Premutation, Wednesday, April 13, 2005 - Friday, April 15, 2005
Location: William F. Bolger Center, Potomac, MD
Description: Workshop goals were to examine the basic science and clinical and epidemiological evidence regarding the fragile X premutation and its effects on reproduction.
