The Dublin Cystinosis Workshop is an interactive forum for researchers to share new knowledge, spark new ideas and explore new research approaches aimed at better understanding and treating the ultra-rare disease of cystinosis
It is a closed workshop, with participation by invitation or via the call for abstracts.
The Dublin Cystinosis Workshop is a scientifically focused workshop that brings together internationally recognised researchers and clinicians from Ireland, the UK, Europe, North America and New Zealand to share the most recent advances in their respective research endeavours and to look at new ways to develop our understanding of cystinosis as a disease and its treatment.
The Dublin Cystinosis Workshop is the only such scientific workshop in Europe focused on cystinosis.
The aim of the workshop is to share new research developments in the area of cystinosis and to stimulate discussions and collaborations that can convert new ideas into real research that moves the cystinosis research field forward.
Topics presented at the workshop cover the spectrum of basic through to translational research.
In particular, researchers who have been funded by or have applied to Cystinosis Ireland for funding are encouraged to present their research at the workshop.
Early stage researchers and PhD students are strongly encouraged to present their research at the workshop.
As it is a closed meeting (no industry) and participation is by invitation only, researchers are free to present their latest scientific work to colleagues spanning a wide range of cross-cutting disciplines from basic through to translational research.
The next meeting will take place in Ireland in April 2023.
WHO IS THE DUBLIN CYSTINOSIS WORKSHOP FOR?
The workshop is open to all scientists and clinicians working in the field of cystinosis and in related areas of science.
Our previous in-person workshops consisted of approximately 30 scientists/clinicians. We aim to keep the Virtual Workshop small to enable discussion, collaboration and sharing.
Those working in the field of cystinosis are very active in this disease area. However, we also are keen to raise awareness of cystinosis research among researchers with relevant expertise but who are not currently involved in cystinosis research.
We strongly encourage early stage researchers and PhD students to participate.
