. In our recent webinar Findacure CEO Rick Thompson, and our Scientific Advisor Dr David Cavalla gave an overview of drug repurposing and tried to explain why it is so high on the agenda for covid-19, and why it should be at the forefront of our minds for rare diseases.
Every year Findacure holds its conference – Drug Repurposing for Rare Diseases – in late February to celebrate Rare Disease Day. This is a chance for a diverse collection of people with an interest in rare diseases and drug repurposing to gather together and share their knowledge and experiences, and hopefully drive forward the redevelopment of old drugs for rare patients.
On Tuesday 8th October 2019, Findacure ran its biggest showcase to-date! This was our first time venturing to the North West region of England, and we were so excited to see what the wonderful city of Manchester had to offer!
