PRF’S INTERNATIONAL WORKSHOP 2005 AN ASTOUNDING SUCCESS
90 Scientists from 9 countries joined together for 3 days in Boston, Massachusetts, setting the stage for the next round of progress in translating bench research on Progeria into treatment.
The 2005 Workshop on Progeria was held November 3-5 at Boston’s Seaport Hotel. The workshop was designed to promote scientific discussions within formal and informal settings. In addition to formal presentations, elements new to this workshop included a poster session, and the opportunity to meet with children and families living with Progeria. The meeting was wonderfully successful, with collaborations formed, data shared on a variety of topics, and new ideas brought to the table. Particularly powerful was the round table discussion by parents of children with Progeria.
This workshop is supported in part by the Ellison Medical Foundation
And the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute of the National Institutes of Health
