  • RDCRN 3rd Conference on Clinical Research for Rare Diseases, Tuesday, October 02, 2012
    Location: Hilton Washington DC/Rockville Hotel & Executive Meeting Center, Rockville, MD
    Description: Clinical research in rare diseases presents a number of challenges and unique issues that are not usually considered in the training of clinical investigators through existing training programs. Goals of the conference include: direct instruction of trainees and new investigators in rare disease research methodology; development of a reusable curriculum/syllabus on rare disease research methodology; and stimulation of ideas regarding the unique issues facing investigators engaged in the study of rare diseases.

  • 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.
