    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.

  • Xeroderma Pigmentosum, Trichothiodystrophy, and Related Disorders of DNA Repair and Aging, Tuesday, September 21, 2010 - Friday, September 24, 2010
    Location: Westfields Marriott Dulles Conference Center, Chantilly, VA

  • Frontiers in Ichthyosis Research, Wednesday, June 23, 2010 - Friday, June 25, 2010
    Location: Regal Sun Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Orlando, Florida
    Description: The goals of this conference were to (1) provide an opportunity for investigators to become inspired by ichthyosis patients, thereby helping them focus on facilitating diagnosis, improving understanding of long- and short-term medical and social issues, and developing new therapeutic approaches to treatment and (2) identify new ways in which the investigators, patients, and patient support groups can achieve ongoing synergistic interactions.

  • Xeroderma Pigmentosum and other Diseases of Human Premature Aging and DNA Repair: Molecules to Patients, Tuesday, September 05, 2006
    Location: National Conference Center, Lansdowne, VA
    Description: This meeting was a follow-up of one held in 2004. The purpose of this workshop was to gather leading scientists and clinicians in this very active area of research. The clinical and mechanistic aspects of Cowden's syndrome (CS) and related DNA repair/transcription defective disorders such as xeroderma pigmentosum (XP) and trichothiodystrophy (TTD) were explored. Our goals were to develop new multidisciplinary collaborations, interactions, and relationships that can lead to a greater understanding of the pathophysiological mechanisms involved in these disorders and to conceive new therapeutic strategies for their treatment.
