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.
THIS IS A CLOSED WORKSHOP. PARTICIPATION IS BY INVITATION ONLY OR VIA THE CALL FOR ABSTRACTS
The draft meeting agenda is available on the following pages along with confirmed speakers.
THE 10TH ANNUAL DUBLIN CYSTINOSIS WORKSHOP WILL BE HELD ON 9th and 10th FEBRUARY 2024. IT WILL ALSO BE THE 10TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE DCW.
The Dublin Cystinosis Workshop is the only such annual 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 will cover the spectrum of basic through to translational research.
For 2024 we are taking a different approach. We will focus on all things muscle and myopathy in cystinosis. This has become an important issue for patients and therefore, for 2024, speakers will be invited who have done and continue to carry out research in this area. Some of our invitees may not be working specifically in cystinosis but may be working in allied fields. The workshop will take the format of presentations from a number of invited speakers presenting latest research results and new research directions in the cystinosis research world. There will be a keynote speaker and junior researchers will present their research via poster format.
Early stage researchers and PhD students are strongly encouraged to present their research on all things muscle and myopathy in cystinosis 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.
Please note, attendance at the Dublin Cystinosis Workshop is by invitation only. If you are interested, please email [email protected] for more details.
