Drug Repurposing for Rare Diseases Conference 2018

Findacure is pleased to announce our 2018 Drug Repurposing for Rare Diseases Conference!


Taking place on Tuesday 27th February, at the Royal College of Nursing in London, our annual conference will bring together patient groups, clinicians, researchers, and life science professionals, to discuss the latest developments in drug repurposing, and its role in the future of rare disease treatment.

Delegates will hear examples of excellent practice of drug repurposing in rare diseases, and make connections with rare advocates in and outside of their respective fields. Prizes will also be awarded to the winners of our 2017 ‘Student Voice‘ essay competition.

The afternoon will include our ‘famous’ lightning talk session where delegates will have the opportunity to propose their own five-minute talks.

Please join us to celebrate Rare Disease Day 2018 and show your support for a united rare disease community.

Sponsorship opportunities for this event are available. If you are interested in supporting our conference, please contact [email protected].
