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.
Gordon Research Conferences CAG Triplet Repeat Disorders and the associated Graduate Research Seminar, Saturday, June 22, 2013 - Friday, June 28, 2013
Location: Waterville Valley Resort, Waterville Valley, NH
Description: The 2013 Gordon Research Conference on CAG Triplet Repeat Disorders will bring together top scientists from around the world to discuss high-impact, interdisciplinary research on CAG Triplet Repeat Disorders. The objective of the conference is to promote scientific discussion and facilitate interdisciplinary exchange by bringing leading researchers in the field together with a broad range of experts representing; clinicians, diagnosticians, neurobiologists, pathologists, geneticists and molecular biologists.
2011 Neurobiology of Disease in Children Symposium: Childhood Ataxia, Tuesday, October 25, 2011
Location: Savannah, GA
Description: The overall aims of this NDC symposia are to (1) review scientific advances and determine their relevance to current and future clinical practice in child neurology; (2) coordinate efforts among various clinical and basic science disciplines, lay organizations, and the NIH to review current research initiatives and define future directions; and (3) disseminate symposia proceedings to ensure that clinical and basic science disciplines are informed about scientific advances, current research initiatives, and future directions. NDC symposia have brought together clinicians, scientists, caregivers, and NIH program officers to determine how research findings can be translated to enhance clinical understanding and affect clinical practice.
Third Genome Dynamics in the Neurosciences Conference, Sunday, July 18, 2010 - Thursday, July 22, 2010
Location: The Hilton Metropole, Brighton, England
Description: The goal of this meeting was to integrate basic processes of DNA damage signaling and repair and clinical aspects of neurological and neurodegenerative disease. The program was designed to bring together leading scientists with primary interests in DNA damage signaling with those working in specific related neurodegenerative disease areas as a means for integrating these fields. It was anticipated that this would generate insights into how normal processes of genome maintenance in the brain contribute to the prevention of a wide range of diseases.
2009 Triplet Repeat Disorders Gordon Conference, Sunday, May 31, 2009 - Friday, June 05, 2009
Location: Waterville Valley, NH
Description: The top two priorities of this conference were training and the communication of cutting-edge science in the area of CAG triplet repeat disorders. The focus of this conference was on areas of rapid advancement and latest developments. Speakers were selected for their expertise, recent contributions to the field, and ability to provide lively presentations. The structured discussion leaders were instructed to focus on issues that cut across each presentation in a session.
