Personalized Medicine: Novel Biologic Therapies for Rare Eosinophilic Disorders, Tuesday, July 14, 2015
Location: Chicago, IL
Description: <p><span style="font-size: 11pt;">The short-term goals of the workshop are: 1) to bring together a multidisciplinary group of clinician-scientists with expertise in rare eosinophilic disorders to discuss issues related to improved patient care and clinical trial design, and 2) to continue to foster collaborative relationships between multidisciplinary clinical and basic science researchers interested in eosinophilic disorders. It is anticipated that the findings from this workshop will lead to a high impact publication addressing the role of personalized medicine in rare eosinophilic disorders and to improved design of planned multicenter clinical trials to assess the safety and efficacy of novel agents for the treatment of these disorders. </span></p>
