ORDR Co-Sponsored Conferences
New Directions in Biology and Disease of Skeletal Muscle, Sunday, June 29, 2014 - Wednesday, July 02, 2014
Location: Chicago, IL
Description: The goals of the New Directions conference are to: (1) provide a unique forum for presentation and sharing of unpublished data, (2) promote collaboration between industry and academic investigators, (3) provide an interactive forum for clinical trial planning and outcome measure development, (4) facilitate the identification of both common and unique targets for each neuromuscular disease, and (5) provide trainees and young investigators a forum in which to present data and to encourage trainees to remain studying neuromuscular disease.
Gene Transfer and Rare Diseases Workshop, Thursday, September 13, 2012
Location: Rockville Hilton, Rockville, Maryland
Description: The NIH Office of Biotechnology Activities and Office of Rare Disease Research, NCATS, are co-sponsoring a workshop to discuss the advances in and challenges of gene transfer for rare diseases. There have been recent promising clinical successes in gene transfer protocols for rare diseases, such as retinal degeneration, hemophilia, and immune disorders. Investigators will discuss their results to date and opportunities and challenges for extending these successes to other similar rare diseases. The panel discussions will focus on strategies for maximizing opportunities for data sharing or platform development.
