ASMD & NPC Research Presentation Abstracts from the 11th Annual WORLD Symposium
Dear NNPDF Families and Friends,
Members of the NNPDF, CCNNPDF, INPDA and the International NNPDF Scientific Advisory Board are currently in attendance at the WORLD (We’re Organizing Research for Lysosomal Diseases) in Orlando, Florida ~ Tuesday, Feb 10th ~ Thursday, Feb 12th, 2015. The attendees are filling a variety of roles tied to our patient advocacy membership representation, presentations of research and keynote speakers for symposiums addressing the next generation of lysosomal disorders: Treatment, Biomarkers and Talent needed to succeed in the Future.
The goal of the WORLD (We’re Organizing Research for Lysosomal Diseases) symposium is to provide a forum to discuss the challenges to research and development of treatments for patients with rare diseases, and to identify opportunities to support the advancement of therapeutic options. Clinicians and researchers who work with lysosomal diseases will have the opportunity to learn about the progression of research and therapy approval processes for a variety of different diagnoses and therapies via face-to-face lectures and in-depth discussion with a panel of experts. This symposium is designed to help patient advocates, scientists, clinicians and other health care professionals identify what resources and actions will be needed to move lysosomal disease research forward.
