DATE FOR THE DIARY - 4th Annual Collingham Real Ale Festival, June 6, 2014 at 7:00pm - Collingham, West Yorkshire
The conference will be held at the Gehry building on the Novartis Campus in Basel, Switzerland, from 5th to 8th March 2014 – a superb setting for stimulating learning, exchanges and networking.
The conference sessions will explore issues and cutting-edge technologies that affect many adult and paediatric conditions. The following topics are to be discussed:
Stem cell and cell therapy approaches
Genetic mapping and genomic instability
Pathophysiology and diagnostics
Regulatory affairs and patients in research
The aim is to promote research on rare and orphan diseases among the general public, industry and policymakers as well as to provide a forum for researchers to meet and pool their knowledge. The underlying objective is to tackle the key issues that need to be addressed if we are to see new and promising therapies and treatments rapidly delivered to patients all around the world.
