Joubert Syndrome Biennial Conferences: Advancing Translational Ciliopathy Research

Wednesday, July 13, 2011 - Saturday, July 16, 2011
Doubletree Hotel Conference Center , Orlando, FL

The health care recommendations and research agenda will be reported to NIH and disseminated to families and professionals via mailings, Web sites, and publication in peer-reviewed journals. Future conferences will focus on translating the rapid basic science advances into clinically useful, disease-specific treatments. In addition to directly improving the lives of individuals with Joubert syndrome (JS), JS research has broad implications for human disease because the genes responsible for JS have also been implicated in more common disorders such as autism, schizophrenia, retinal blindness, and obesity.
