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.

  • The 11th Annual North American Genetic Analysis of ABC Transporters Workshop, Wednesday, September 24, 2014 - Thursday, September 25, 2014
    Location: NCI-Frederick, Frederick, MD
    Description: <p>This workshop features presentations from graduate students, post-docs., and senior investigators studying the role of ATP Cassette Binding Proteins in human disease. Phylogenetic studies, model systems, and bioinformatic techniques that shed light in this rapidly developing research area are presented. Because student presentations predominate, unpublished results often are first disclosed at these workshops.</p>

  • Neural Interfaces Conference 2010 , Monday, June 21, 2010 - Tuesday, June 22, 2010
    Location: Long Beach Convention Center, Long Beach, California
    Description: The goal of the workshop was to present state-of-the-art technological advances to both the neural prosthesis and deep brain stimulation (DBS) communities while encouraging interaction between these two groups to develop new collaborations to create therapies for human use. In addition, inclusion and showcasing of trainees was an important goal. Student poster presentations fostered scientific exchange, networking, and communication among registrants and 20 travel awards were given to qualifying undergraduate, graduate or medical students, and postdoctoral fellows. One such interaction between student and principal investigator (PI) has resulted in the student becoming a postdoctoral fellow in the PI’s laboratory.
