    Genome Integrity Discussion Group

    Speakers: Hironori Funabiki (The Rockefeller University), Tony Huang (NYU School of Medicine), Amy MacQueen (Wesleyan University), and Jessica Tyler (Weill Cornell Medical College)

    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.

    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 (University of Pittsburgh), Jakub Tolar (University of Minnesota), Kevin Flanigan (Nationwide Children's Hospital), Katherine A. High (Spark Therapeutics), and Steven J. Gray (University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill)

    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.

    Tuesday, April 25, 2017 | 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM

    Complement Pathways in Disease

    Keynote Speaker: V. Michael Holers (University of Colorado)

    The complement system is the first line of defense against infection, however we have yet to capitalize on its therapeutic potential. This symposium will focus on novel insights into the complement pathway in a number of clinical disorders.

    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.

    Wednesday, May 24, 2017 | 12:00 PM - 5:00 PM

    Chemical Biology Discussion Group Year-End Symposium

    Speakers: Sean F. Brady (The Rockefeller University), Dirk Trauner (New York University)
