The Translational Science of Rare Diseases

From Rare to Care IV

Research on Rare Diseases is of critical relevance to 300 million people affected worldwide by more than 8.000 rare disease entities. Additionally, it may open new horizons to understand fundamental pathomechanisms and to develop new therapies for common disorders. This symposium focuses on cutting-edge insights from basic and clinical science and their translation into the development of novel therapeutic strategies for rare diseases. The Research for Rare Consortium, supported by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research, is proud to share innovative and exciting results and hopes to increase enthusiasm for rare diseases research.

The symposium was organised from 3 – 5 May 2023 by the Coordinating office of the German research networks on rare diseases, based in Munich, Friedrich Baur Institute at the Department of Neurology, LMU Klinikum, LMU Munich.
