    Genome Integrity Discussion Group

    Keynote Speaker: Stephen J. Elledge (Harvard Medical School)

    The Genome Integrity Discussion Group provides a forum for interactions between basic and clinical research groups working on chromosome biology and function, and at the interface between chromosome integrity and onset and progression of malignancy.

    June 13 - 14, 2017

    Neuroplasticity, Neuroregeneration, and Brain Repair

    The conference will explore neuroregenerative processes and identify strategies for translating knowledge into treatments for neurodegenerative diseases and nervous system injuries.

    May 15 - 17, 2017

    13th International Conference on Myasthenia Gravis and Related Disorders

    Keynote Speaker: Vijay K. Kuchroo (Harvard Institutes of Medicine)

    Learn about most recent advances in basic, translational, and clinical research on the rare, acquired disorder, Myasthenia Gravis, as well as implications of this research on a range of related autoimmune and neuromuscular diseases.

    Tuesday, April 11, 2017 | 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM

    Gene Therapy for Rare Diseases

    Speakers: Brian Kaspar (Nationwide Children's Hospital), R. Jude Samulski (Bamboo Therapeutics), Barry Byrne (University of Florida, Powell Gene Therapy Center), Maria Escolar (Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh), Jakub Tolar (University of Minnesota), Kevin Flanigan (Nationwide Children's Hospital), Katherine A. High (Spark Therapeutics), and David Pearce (Sanford Research)

    Gene therapy has been proposed as a promising therapeutic strategy for monogenic disorders. This symposium will explore recent advances in the field, and identify ongoing obstacles on the path to wider use of this approach.
