NCATS Co-Sponsored Conferences

  • Developing Endpoints to Facilitate Clinical Trials in Rare Diseases, Tuesday, November 17, 2015 - Friday, November 20, 2015
    Location: Bethesda, MD
    Description: The Response Evaluation in Neurofibromatosis and Schwannomatosis (REiNS) International Collaboration holds a winter annual conference each year to develop and to discuss novel outcome measures for clinical trials of neurofibromatosis and schwannomatosis, a group of related tumor suppressor syndromes. The annual winter conference has been very successful in stimulating international collaboration among the many different specialists involved in the treatment of these rare conditions. The 2015 conference theme is to develop consensus-driven outcome measures for clinical trials in patients with rare disease such as neurofibromatosis and schwannomatosis.

    Location: Washington , D.C.
    Description: In order to stimulate exchange between basic scientists and clinical investigators, a number of sessions will be organized to discuss preclinical models and findings side by side with clinical findings and current management in patients. The hope is that this exchange will promote the translation of preclinical findings into clinical trials. Moreover, invited speakers outside of the NF community will add to the scientific diversity and stimulate discussions and promote new collaborations.
