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

You can find the meeting agenda here.

THE 7TH ANNUAL DUBLIN CYSTINOSIS WORKSHOP 2021 WILL BE HELD ON 20 MAY 2021

As in other years, the Virtual 7th Annual Dublin Cystinosis Workshop 2020 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 will 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.

This year, the workshop will take the format of include presentations from a number of keynote speakers and a series of shorter research communications presenting latest research results and new research directions in the cystinosis research world.

This year, we will also have a particular focus on clinical trials being conducted in cystinosis worldwide and we also hope to inform researchers about key infrastructures here in Ireland that make it an attractive location to host a clinical trial.

We look forward to seeing you virtually on the 20th May.
