The 8th Rare Diseases Summer School (Rare Disease Initiative Zurich) will focus on a wide variety of subjects in the arena of rare diseases, from disease mechanisms and animal models, to improving diagnoses and novel therapeutics. There will be lectures by national and international rare disease experts, workshops, poster viewing sessions and selected oral presentations by participants.
The school addresses clinicians, physician-scientists, postdocs, and PhD students as well as select students from various disciplines such as medicine, biology, pharmaceutical science, psychology, sociology, and related fields. Participants are expected to bring a poster about their work or research interests related to rare diseases. See here for Further Information.
