News & Events


NCATS Co-Sponsored Conferences

  • Primary Immune Deficiency Treatment Consortium (PIDTC) Scientific Workshop, Thursday, April 07, 2011 - Saturday, April 09, 2011
    Location: San Francisco, CA
    Description: This was a 3-day meeting. Participation at the workshop was by invitation and included representatives from each of the centers participating at PIDTC as well as representatives of CIBMTR, USIDNET, NIAID, ORDR, EBMT, and ESID. This was meant to favor collaboration and promote international collaborative trials in the field of these rare disorders. Special attention was paid to invitation of young investigators at a senior stage in their training or at the beginning of their academic careers. The meeting was open to representatives of the patient advocacy groups that are active in the field of primary immune deficiencies (PIDs) with the intent of promoting communication and collaboration. The results of the meeting will be published in a peer-reviewed journal.

  • Newborn Screening in the Genomic Era: Setting a Research Agenda, Monday, December 13, 2010 - Tuesday, December 14, 2010
    Location: Rockville, MD
    Description: This meeting allowed leaders in the fields of genomics and newborn screening to learn from each other and together explore new ways to advance research on new genomic technologies, potential health applications for newborn screening and beyond, and related ELSI issues.

  • American Society for Microbiology (ASM) Conference on DNA Repair and Mutagenesis, Saturday, May 30, 2009 - Friday, June 05, 2009
    Location: Fairmont Chateau Whistler, British Columbia, Canada
    Description: The major goals of this conference were to disseminate novel, unpublished results; identify new technologies and clinical therapies; and foster new collaborations among participants. A hallmark of this conference is the exceptionally broad cross-section of participants in terms of research focus (basic, translational, and clinical), age (the large meeting venue draws many younger scientists, graduate students, and senior investigators; ASM committed $20,000 to subsidize graduate student travel), institutional affiliation (academia, government, private industry, and publishing), and geography. Numerous opportunities were provided for in-depth discussion during and after sessions and at meals, including the popular evening poster sessions to promote informal interactions among all participants.

  • Fifth International Meeting of Gene and Cell Therapies for Arthritis and Related Diseases, Tuesday, April 29, 2008 - Thursday, May 01, 2008
    Location: Bell Harbor Conference Center, Seattle, WA
    Description: The goals of this meeting were to share advances in cellular biology that offer the opportunity to harness regulatory immune cells to combat autoimmune disease, to harness the use of multipotent progenitor cells to augment tissue regeneration and repair, and to accelerate the development of molecular and cellular therapies for rheumatologic and orthopaedic disorders. The GTARD conference series was initiated 9 years ago as a dedicated forum for investigators performing research in these areas to review and discuss scientific progress and to share ideas and technologies. Proceedings from the first three meetings have been published and proceedings from the 2006 meeting are currently in revision. The proceedings from this meeting will be similarly published.

  • Workshop on Registries for Primary Immunodeficiency Diseases, Tuesday, November 19, 1996
    Location: NIH Campus, Bethesda, MD
