January 11 - January 13
Congenital Dystrophies – Neuromuscular Disorders Precision Medicine: Genomics to Care and Cure
Medical experts from all over the world will meet for a conference exploring precision medicine approaches to the treatment of congenital muscular dystrophies and neuromuscular disorders. Nine distinguished international speakers from elite universities and research institutes in France, Switzerland, USA and the UK will give talks presenting their experiences.
The conference is open to invitees only on 11 and 12 January, but will be open to the general public on the final day, 13 January.
The event will focus in particular on the potential for precision and genomic treatment approaches to congenital muscular weakness in myopathies and dystrophies. It will also address the challenges facing implementation of such treatments and will outline ongoing international efforts to overcome these challenges. The conference is sponsored by Qatar National Research Fund, a member of Qatar Foundation.
