Conferences



ORDR-Sponsored Conferences

  • 2013 Cilia, Mucus and Mucociliary Interactions Gordon Research Conference, Sunday, April 07, 2013 - Friday, April 12, 2013
    Location: Lucca, Italy
    Description: The goals of this conference are to bring together multidisciplinary experts in ciliary motility, mucus, mucociliary interactions and other cilia/fluid systems to discuss the latest results in these fields and to investigate new ways of approaching these dynamic interactive systems to further understanding of their properties and impact in human health and disease.

  • 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.

  • 2011 Cilia, Mucus & Mucociliary Interactions Gordon Research Conference, Sunday, February 13, 2011 - Friday, February 18, 2011
    Location: Ventura, CA
    Description: By tradition, the work presented at a Gordon Research Conference (GRC) is expected to be at the frontiers of science and unpublished to ensure presentation of the most recent and novel data. This format allows presentation of the most recent “hottest” findings. No publication is permitted from these proceedings as per GRC guidelines.

  • Primary Ciliary Dyskinesia and Overlapping Syndromes, Thursday, September 30, 2010 - Friday, October 01, 2010
    Location: Eric P. Newman Education Center, Washington University Medical Center, St. Louis, MO
    Description: The four main objectives of this international conference were to (1) optimize diagnosis of primary ciliary dyskinesia (PCD) through standardization of diagnostic testing, (2) define PCD genes and gene mutations through global networking, (3) optimize clinical care of PCD patients and develop clinical research networks to test therapies through clinical trials, and (4) refine nomenclature for ciliopathies and define overlapping features. Another goal was to establish PCD centers of excellence that will participate in research as well as clinical care. Given the lack of evidence in best clinical care, establishing a clinical trial network is urgently needed. Good medical management in a specialized PCD diagnostic and treatment center will probably provide the PCD patient with the best chance for preservation of lung function over time.

  • 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.
