8th European Conference on rare diseases & orphan products
26 May 2016 - 28 May 2016
The European Conference on Rare Diseases & Orphan Products (ECRD) is organised in partnership with HOPE from 26 to 28 May 2016 in Edinburgh. It is the unique platform/forum across all rare diseases, across all European countries, bringing together all stakeholders – patients’ representatives, academics, researchers, healthcare professionals, industry, payers, regulators and policy makers.
ECRD provides the state-of-the-art of the rare disease environment, monitoring and benchmarking initiatives. It now brings together over 80 speakers and more than 800 participants, covering six themes of content over two days: from the latest research, to developments in new treatments, to innovations in healthcare, social care and support at the European, national and regional levels. Registrations for ECRD 2016 will be opening at the end of November.
A call for posters closed on 31 January 2016.
Patient groups, academics, health care professionals and all other interested parties having conducted research or studies on rare diseases or public health projects are encouraged to submit a poster abstract to the ECRD 2016.
