AKT/PI3KCA Pathway-associated Mosaic Disorders, Wednesday, September 11, 2013 - Wednesday, September 11, 2013
Location: Building 45, NIH Campus, Bethesda, MD
Description: The goals of this workshop are to: (1.) Aggregate clinical and molecular data on patients from the groups to draw conclusions on the range of phenotypes and clinical delineation of the disorders. (2.) Develop consensus on clinical diagnostic categories, proper names for the entities, and molecular correlations. (3.) Propose an agenda for moving forward with considerations for both symptomatic and primary treatment.
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.
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.
Xeroderma Pigmentosum and other Diseases of Human Premature Aging and DNA Repair: Molecules to Patients, Tuesday, September 05, 2006
Location: National Conference Center, Lansdowne, VA
Description: This meeting was a follow-up of one held in 2004. The purpose of this workshop was to gather leading scientists and clinicians in this very active area of research. The clinical and mechanistic aspects of Cowden's syndrome (CS) and related DNA repair/transcription defective disorders such as xeroderma pigmentosum (XP) and trichothiodystrophy (TTD) were explored. Our goals were to develop new multidisciplinary collaborations, interactions, and relationships that can lead to a greater understanding of the pathophysiological mechanisms involved in these disorders and to conceive new therapeutic strategies for their treatment.
