Sanford-Burnham’s successful series of Rare Disease Day symposia is based on the concept that treatment of rare diseases requires participation and exchange among all stakeholders—scientists, physicians, affected patients and their families, support groups, granting agencies, industry, and philanthropists.
The 2012 event, organized by Dr. Hudson Freeze, focused on Glycosylation-Based Disorders: Discovery, Patients, and Progress Toward Treatments. The keynote speaker was Dr. Eric Green, director of the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) at the NIH.
