Eighth Annual SBP Rare Disease Day Symposium, Alagille Syndrome: New Research--New Hope 24 February 2017 Sanford Children's Health Research Centre, 10905 Road to the Cure, La Jolla, California
+18586463100
Hosted by Sanford Burnham Prebys Medical Discovery Institute (SBP)

Since its inception in 2010, the mission of the annual Rare Disease Day Symposium at Sanford Burnham Prebys Medical Discovery Institute (SBP) has been to serve patients and families affected by rare genetic diseases by offering direct access to leading medical researchers and clinicians in a collaborative setting.

The 8th Annual SBP Rare Disease Day Symposium at the Institute’s La Jolla campus on Friday, February 24, 2017 is the first scientific meeting focused on Alagille Syndrome (ALGS), a genetic disorder that causes liver, eye and skeletal abnormalities. ALGS occurs in more than 1 in 30,000 newborns. Better treatments are desperately needed—half of Alagille patients require a liver transplant before adulthood, and there are no therapies that address the underlying cause of this potentially fatal disease.

The goal of the 2017 SBP symposium is to bring together researchers studying Alagille Syndrome and related fields to foster new perspectives, ideas, and collaborations, which will accelerate efforts towards a cure.

While the focus of the symposium is on ALGS, the topics covered, including liver disease, genetics, regeneration, JAGGED1, and Notch signaling, are highly relevant to other diseases.

Expert talks at the 2017 meeting will provide emphasis on:
            • ALGS pathology
            • biliary paucity
            • genetics
            • Notch signaling
            • biliary development/regeneration

Free registration for the day-long event, as well as speaker biographies and event information, are available on the symposium website: http://www.sbpdiscovery.org/rarediseaseday.

We hope you will join us to help make the 2017 meeting a great success.
