The First International Symposium on Translational Clinical Research for Inherited and Orphan Retinal Diseases

Friday, November 05, 2004 - Sunday, November 07, 2004
Wardman Park Marriott Hotel, Washington, DC

This international symposium was sponsored by the National Eye Institute; the Office of Orphan Products Development of the Food and Drug Administration; the Office of Rare Diseases (ORD); and the National Neurovision Research Institute, Foundation Fighting Blindness. The goals were to promote drug and genetic translational clinical research for rare retinal disease therapies; review status, case studies, and challenges of inherited rare disease research; facilitate interaction across vision, neurology, gerontology, and audiology; define the strategies and dynamics for commercializing orphan treatments; and prioritize and develop strategies for intellectual property, operational, and financial avenues to bring new therapies to patients.
