News & Events


NCATS Co-Sponsored Conferences

  • 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 Because student presentations predominate, unpublished results often are first disclosed at these workshops.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>

  • The 10th Annual North American Genetic Analysis of ABC Transporters Workshop, Thursday, September 19, 2013 - Friday, September 20, 2013
    Location: NCI-Frederick, Frederick, MD
    Description: The goals of this conference are to bring together multidisciplinary experts in ciliary motility, mucus, mucociliary interactions and other cilia/fluid systems to discuss the latest results in these fields and to investigate new ways of approaching these dynamic interactive systems to further understanding of their properties and impact in human health and disease.

  • 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.

  • The Sixth Annual North American Genetic Analysis of ABC Transporters Workshop, Thursday, September 24, 2009 - Friday, September 25, 2009
    Location: Frederick, MD
    Description: The objectives of the meeting were to bring together researchers in the field of ABC transporters to discuss advances in the field and new research findings. Presentations included talks by students and postdoctoral scientists on their current research, overview presentations by leading researchers in the field, and poster presentations. In addition, presentations were given by representatives of rare disease foundations to provide interaction between scientists in the field and the disease foundations. The goals were to bring the top research groups in the field together with representatives from major disease foundations to discuss new data and educate new investigators in the field. New research ideas and funding ideas, productive collaborations, and job opportunities for young investigators were generated.

Other Conferences

  • The North American Cystic Fibrosis Conference is held every year to help advance CF research and care. This meeting is sponsored by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. It brings together scientists, clinicians and caregivers from around the world to discuss and share ideas on the latest advances in CF research, care and drug development and to exchange ideas about ways to improve the health and quality of life for people with CF.
