The Virtual Rare Disease Showcase

17th – 19th November 2020

#RareShowcase2020 begins in








Findacure’s Rare Disease Showcase Series, now in its fifth year, is a celebration of innovative rare disease projects across the UK.

With the world transformed by a global pandemic, this year’s showcase is, naturally, a little different. Taking place entirely online, our 2020 event – The Virtual Rare Disease Showcase – will illustrate the impact that technological and digital advancements are having on the future of rare disease treatment and care.

Our Virtual Showcase is designed to be a unique event, with interactive sessions taking place over a three-day period, including conversations on telemedicine, artificial intelligence, patient group innovations, and the impact of Covid-19 on rare diseases. Our online stage will include talks from across the rare disease spectrum, supplemented by roundtable discussions, networking sessions, one-to-one video chats, virtual exhibitions and more. 

Whilst the format may have changed; crucially, the Rare Disease Showcase remains an event for everyone – whether patient group, clinician, pharmaceutical representative, consultant, researcher, or student – if you care about rare, then this is the event for you!

Whether you wish to attend a single session, or three days of fun, secure your place now for free at The Virtual Rare Disease Showcase

"I thought it was a great event and actually quite inspirational. It is rare to get that combination of attendees with development scientists, clinicians, patients and families. I think you can really build some momentum in this field with the way you coordinating things."

"I came without expectations and was overwhelmed by the diversity that was somehow interconnected. I went away fulfilled with valuable contacts."

"A very informative and interesting day. Fantastically planned and executed. Thank you for such a lovely warm welcome."

"The diversity of topics helped make each session relevant and the lightning talks were a great way to dive into an area."

"I have found it genuinely humbling and eye opening. All talkers and contributors have been engaging and given well-presented talks. There has also been a lot of varied topics covered."
