News & Events


ORDR Co-Sponsored Conferences

  • 2016 Rare Disease Day at NIH, Monday, February 29, 2016
    Location: Building 10, Masur Auditorium, National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, MD
    Description: The 2016 Rare Disease Day at NIH will take place on February 29. The event, sponsored by NCATS and the NIH Clinical Center, aims to raise awareness about rare diseases, the patients they affect and the research collaborations that are addressing rare disease challenges. The day will feature tours, posters and exhibits, and presentations.

  • Gordon Research Conference – Intermediate Filaments, Saturday, June 14, 2014 - Friday, June 20, 2014
    Location: Mount Snow Resort, West Dover, VT
    Description: <p>The 2014 GRC-Intermediate Filaments will include short talks, discussions, and poster presentations from the leaders in the field. It will provides several functional perspectives with an emphasis on the paradigm shifting notion that IFs are not only structural proteins but also play essential roles as signaling organizers and buffers of cellular stress, which contribute to number of disease pathologies. There will be robust discussions on how mutations in the IF genes encoding these IF proteins are responsible for rare diseases, such as epidermolysis bullosa simplex (EBS), but extending into the entire list of rare diseases outlined above.<span>&nbsp; </span>Discussions will be focused on how cell biology and physiology efforts are providing unique therapeutic approaches to the highly complex disorders, such as those caused by lamin A/C gene mutations, which are involved in Progeria.</p>

  • Workshop on Rare Syndromic Body Fat Disorders: What Can They Teach Us?, Thursday, March 01, 2012 - Friday, March 02, 2012
    Location: Lister Hill Auditorium, NIH Campus, Bethesda, MD
    Description: We hope to get a good estimate of the individuals with obesity and lipodystrophic syndromes where the genetic causes are unknown, and to learn what hurdles are commonly encountered when trying to find causative mutations. Through presentations and discussions we hope to encourage further investigation of cells from families with rare single gene or syndromic obesity disorders, to learn about unknown biological pathways regulating energy balance, and to encourage further human research in order to shed light on why obesity occurs in some individuals with the “same” syndrome but not others.
