KABUKI SYNDROME RESEARCH CONFERENCES
2021 Virtual Research Conference October 22-23, 2021
We are excited to announce the return of the Annual Kabuki Syndrome Foundation Research Conference. This virtual event supports several of our strategic initiatives; one of which is to bring together hundreds of patient families from around the world, researchers, clinicians, and biotechnology firms working on Kabuki Syndrome. Event participation is free. We hope to extend our reach even further this year in a virtual format.
Program highlights include:
Leading Kabuki Syndrome researchers will present their latest findings and participate in a LIVE Q&A panel
AllStripes, an innovative medical data science company, will discuss rare disease drug discovery through their research platform
Oryzon Genomics, a leading pharmaceutical company, will present the potential of a small molecule drug for use in Kabuki Syndrome
Researchers will discuss empowering patients and understanding the role they play in discovery and basic research
Prioritizing research and creating a roadmap through community crowdsourced input
Global patient advocacy group recognitions followed by presentations and panel discussions
An inspirational panel discussion with young adults who have Kabuki Syndrome
This is a FREE event.
Individual registration is required. We are finalizing the agenda and will reach out to registrants with program updates.
