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 Because student presentations predominate, unpublished results often are first disclosed at these workshops.

Other Conferences

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.
