ORDR Co-Sponsored Conferences

  • The Spectrum of Caregiving and Palliative Care in Rare Diseases, Tuesday, June 09, 2015
    Location: Building 31, 6C, Room 6, Bethesda, MD
    Description: The findings and recommendations resulting from the Workshop will provide guidance to the extramural community as well as to NINR and other Institutes, Offices (e.g., ORDR), and agencies in developing strategies for advancing the science of palliative care and caregiving in rare disease and research programs. It is anticipated that a funding opportunity announcement will result from the Workshop.

  • American Society of Gene & Cell Therapy (ASGCT) 18th Annual Meeting, Wednesday, May 13, 2015 - Saturday, May 16, 2015
    Location: New Orleans, LA
    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.

  • Gordon Research Conference on Multi-Drug Efflux Systems Shared Molecular Mechanisms but Diverging Roles in Physiology and Medicine, Sunday, March 17, 2013 - Friday, March 22, 2013
    Location: Four Points Sheraton/Holiday Inn Express, Ventura, CA
    Description: The goal of the 2013 Multidrug Efflux Systems GRC is to bring together scientists from diverse fields to interact, learn from each other, identify new approaches and challenges, and make greater strides in overcoming the individual diseases that involve transporter efflux pumps. It is expected that this meeting will have a significant broad impact in education and training of future scientists working in crossdisciplinary areas.

  • 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 Multi-Drug Efflux Systems Gordon Research Conference, Sunday, June 12, 2011 - Friday, June 17, 2011
    Location: Les Diablerets Conference Center, Les Diablerets, Switzerland
    Description: This meeting will focus on recent advances in unraveling molecular mechanisms of transport and multi-drug recognition based on biochemical, genetic and structural studies. Special emphasis will be made on new methods and techniques to study membrane proteins. Many other aspects such as the cellular mechanisms regulating activity of MDR transporters, the physiological functions of MDR transporters in various organisms and their pathophysiological functions in humans will be also covered by leading scientists and representatives of pharmaceutical companies from all over the world.

  • 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.
