Description: From our plenary lectures, this year to be given by Drs. Steven Rosenberg and Anthony Atala, to our 19 scientific symposia featuring invited speakers from across our discipline, to our nightly abstract poster receptions, where the majority of the over 700 abstracts submitted to the Annual Meeting are presented, the ASGCT Annual Meeting is certain to be the premiere scientific meeting in our field.
9th International Conference on Frontotemporal Dementias, Wednesday, October 22, 2014 - Saturday, October 25, 2014
Location: Vancouver, BC, Canada
Description: <p>The 9th International Conference on Frontotemporal Dementias (ICFTD)<span> </span>is held every two years and is the only regularly scheduled international conference devoted to Frontotemporal dementia (FTD), making it an important opportunity for FTD clinicians, researchers, trainees and caregivers from around the world to share knowledge with the goal of improving care for patients with this devastating neurodegenerative disease. This is a particularly exciting time in FTD research as significant recent advances in our understanding of the molecular basis of FTD now provide us with the foundation for the rational development of targeted therapies. It is anticipated that the 2014 conference will attract more than 600 international delegates.</p>
Economic Considerations in the Development of Therapies for Neuromuscular Disease, Sunday, September 21, 2014 - Tuesday, September 23, 2014
Location: Beaver Hollow Conference Center, Java Center, NY
Description: <p>The goals of the conference are:<span> </span>1.) To provide an informal environment away from competing activities for the interaction/ development of collaborations among established investigators and between senior and new/junior investigators, and to present a collaborative environment for new project development among investigators.<span> </span>2.) To offer senior investigators opportunities to determine the appropriateness of sites/investigators to participate in new trials, providing an entry point for junior trainees/investigators to become involved in studies.<span> </span>3.) To provide an opportunity for industry representatives to interact with clinical investigators to discuss collaboration.<span> </span>These discussions will increase investigator involvement with new industry therapeutics.</p>
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.
