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.
New Directions in Biology and Disease of Skeletal Muscle, Sunday, June 29, 2014 - Wednesday, July 02, 2014
Location: Chicago, IL
Description: The goals of the New Directions conference are to: (1) provide a unique forum for presentation and sharing of unpublished data, (2) promote collaboration between industry and academic investigators, (3) provide an interactive forum for clinical trial planning and outcome measure development, (4) facilitate the identification of both common and unique targets for each neuromuscular disease, and (5) provide trainees and young investigators a forum in which to present data and to encourage trainees to remain studying neuromuscular disease.
Congenital Muscular Dystrophy: From Clinical Pathology to Underlying Scientific Mechanisms, Exploring the Role of the Myomatrix, Sunday, April 22, 2012 - Tuesday, April 24, 2012
Location: University of Nevada School of Medicine, Center for Molecular Medicine, Reno, NV
Description: The goals of the conference are to: 1) Establish the current state of knowledge in different myomatrix research areas germane to the CMDs and to dystrophic pathology, 2) Explore novel mechanisms, intersections and crosstalk of relevant mechanisms and perform comparative analysis across disease models, 3) Design effective strategies and platforms to pursue treatment development for key aspects of CMD clinical pathology to drive future translational opportunities
