Drug Repurposing for Rare Diseases Conference 2019
27th February, 2019 at 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
Developing drugs for rare diseases is challenging, both due to limited knowledge and small patient populations. Where treatments do exist, they often come with high price tags which healthcare providers struggle to pay for.
Our annual conference discusses the role that drug repurposing can play in lowering the cost and accelerating the development of rare disease treatments. Held in celebration of Rare Disease Day, our event will unite the rare disease community to showcase innovative and groundbreaking drug repurposing projects that can bring real change to those living with rare diseases.
The conference, taking place on 27th February 2019 at the Royal College of Nursing, is open to anyone with an interest in rare diseases and lunch and refreshments will be provided. The day will include a diverse selection of invited speakers, a panel discussion, awards for the winners of our 2018 ‘Student Voice’ essay competition, and a lightning talk session where delegates can propose their own five-minute talks.
Early bird tickets are on sale now until Wednesday 19th December. Free tickets are available for carers of paid and registered delegates.
Provisional programme coming soon.
