In order to ensure that scientists have the latest knowledge to keep pace with technology and therapeutic development, we are hosting the 2nd Annual World Congress: Lessons Learned from Rare Disease and Personalized Medicine Approaches on September 17-18 at the Royal Sonesta hotel in Cambridge, MA. While the focus of the conference is rare diseases and personalized medicine across various therapeutic areas, there will be a broader discussion around drug discovery approaches and innovative therapeutic modalities that are being employed in the rare disease space. A few reasons to attend include:
- Speakers – Attendees will learn from and network with the 18 scientists and patient advocates from academia, industry, and foundations including keynote lectures from speakers with the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and AFM-Telethon.
- Networking – Attendees can meet and discuss innovative science and technology platforms with top scientists and entrepreneurs from the Greater Boston area.
- Patient advocacy – Attendees will meet Mike Porath, a journalist who founded theMighty.com, and Mark Dant – whose story was featured on 60 Minutes, CBS news, and other media outlets.
This event is a rare opportunity for those in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industry along with academics and venture firms to attend a groundbreaking conference with cutting-edge science combined with inspirational stories of patients and their caregivers.
