Ladies and gentlemen,
on behalf of the Organizers, I have the pleasure to invite you to participate in the International Symposium Rare Diseases Day 2021 "Long diagnosis, misdiagnosis, or no diagnosis – Rare diseases under the radar." organized on the occasion of the Rare Disease Day by Regional Specialized Children’s Hospital in Olsztyn and the University of Warmia and Mazury in Olsztyn under auspices of Eurocordis (rarediseaseday.org).
The Symposium will be dedicated to the use of multi-omnics methods, including next-generation sequencing (NGS), in the diagnosis of rare diseases, such as also in discovering and describing new rare diseases. They will be discussed the possibility of personalized therapies in patients with selected rare neuronal channelopathies. Among the invited speakers there are representatives of centers associated with three European Reference Networks - ERN-RND, ERN-ITHACA, ERN-CRANIO. We will also host small patients of our Hospital diagnosed with congenital neuronal channelopathies at various stages of implementing personalized therapy.
All interested persons are cordially invited to participate in our Symposium.
