The Glasgow Rare Disease Showcase

10th October at 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

October will see the Findacure team crossing borders to celebrate rare disease projects in Scotland! Our Glasgow Rare Disease Showcase will unite the rare disease community and provide an opportunity for patient groups, researchers, clinicians, and the life sciences industry to come together as equals and share their rare disease stories.

In particular, our showcase will include:

  • highlights of exciting developments in Scotland’s rare disease community
  • two(!) lightning talk sessions with delegate proposed five-minute talks
  • a panel session discussing rare disease policy in Scotland
  • ample networking opportunities for all attendees

The showcase is open to anyone with an interest in rare diseases and lightning talk proposals are welcome from all delegates. Calls for lightning talks will be open until early September and can be put forward during the registration process.

We are also very pleased to offer a number of exhibition stands to patient organisations, completely free of charge. If you’d like the opportunity to exhibit at the showcase, please complete this form.

If you have any questions or are interested in sponsorship opportunities, please contact [email protected].

With thanks to our headline sponsor:
