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.
Overcoming Barriers to International Clinical Trials for Rare Cancers , Friday, December 10, 2010
Location: Bethesda, Maryland
Description: The goals of this conference were to introduce key institutional players to the topic of international clinical trials in rare cancers and to establish an ongoing dialogue. Participants left the meeting with a set of specific priorities that need to be enacted to promote these trials. The meeting promoted consensus on the way that resources are prioritized to address rare cancers. Participants were asked to convey the content of the meeting to their constituencies and to follow up with pilot concepts.
