11th Annual SBP Rare Disease Day Symposium and Bi-Annual CDG Family Conference

August 14, 2019
11th Annual SBP Rare Disease Day Symposium and Bi-Annual CDG Family Conference
 
“Congenital Disorders of Glycosylation”
 
Friday, February 28–Sunday, March 1, 2020
The Dana on Mission Bay, San Diego, CA

$45/day or $150 for the full meeting*
*Registration sponsorships available for poster session presenters
 
In February 2020, basic researchers, clinicians, patients, family members and advocates will bring their talents and special stories to Mission Bay in San Diego, CA. Together, we will foster new perspectives, ideas, and collaborations, and accelerate therapeutic efforts for those living with CDG.
 
SBP’s scientific symposium will be held Friday, February 28 and Saturday, February 29, 2020, kicking off with an inspiring keynote presentation on “The Basic Science Origins of CDG” from Nobel Laureate Randy Schekman, PhD, UC Berkeley. In addition, 16 noted CDG-focused scientists and clinicians have agreed to speak on the following topics:
 
1. PMM2-CDG: Overview, Models and Therapies
2. Other Glycosylation Disorders: Models and Therapies
3. Basic Science of Multiple CDGs
 
The three-day event will conclude on Sunday, March 1 with the CDG Family Conference. Family topics include education on the science behind CDG, resources available for patients and families, and interventional and therapeutic approaches. 
 
We are also excited to offer a Poster Session the evening of Friday, February 29—an opportunity for junior investigators and postdocs to present emerging science alongside patient and advocate presenters.

13th Jenner Glycobiology and Medicine Symposium

March 8, 2019

May 4-7, 2019
Cambridge, MA
Event Link

The Jenner Glycobiology and Medicine symposia were the first and main international multidisciplinary conferences set up to examine the relevance of glycobiology to immunology, medicine and clinical practice.

The symposia, since 2001, have been organized by the Royal Society of Medicine with the aim to widen clinical participation and to actively promote and foster greater interaction and collaboration between glycobiologists and clinicians.

This meeting, in collaboration with the Harvard Medical School Center for Glycoscience, aims to provide an international forum for scientists and clinicians to disseminate the findings of current leading edge research in both novel and classic fields of glycobiology, glycoimmunology and glycomedicine.

This symposium is aimed at scientists and clinicians at all levels and all disciplines involved in the research and management of human disease.
