Drug Repurposing for Rare Diseases 24 February 2020 America Square Conference Centre, London, United Kingdom
Hosted by Findacure

Findacure's Drug Repurposing for Rare Diseases Conference is returning for its seventh consecutive year!

Developing drugs for rare diseases is challenging, both due to limited knowledge and small patient populations. Where treatments do exist, they often come with high price tags which healthcare providers struggle to pay for.

Our annual conference discusses the role that drug repurposing can play in lowering the cost and accelerating the development of rare disease treatments. Held in celebration of Rare Disease Day, our event will unite the rare disease community to showcase innovative and groundbreaking drug repurposing projects that can bring real change to those living with rare diseases.

The conference, taking place on 24th February at the America Square Conference Centre, is open to anyone with an interest in rare diseases and lunch and refreshments will be provided. The day will include a diverse selection of invited speakers, a panel discussion, awards for the winners of our 2019 'Student Voice' essay competition, and a lightning talk session where delegates can propose their own five-minute talks.

Tickets are available here.
