The course will provide participants with useful tools, instruments and knowledge on novel strategies to foster solutions of undiagnosed RD cases. Registration is open until 26th January!

The International Course Training on strategies to foster solutions of undiagnosed rare disease cases will be held 27-29 April in Rome as part of the training activities proposed by the European Joint Programme on Rare Diseases (EJP RD), within the WP14 "Training on Data Management & Quality" led by Dr. Claudio Carta. The Course is made up of 3 days of residential training organized by Istituto Superiore di Sanità (ISS), and directed by by Dr. Domenica Taruscio.

Several initiatives have been undertaken at national and international level for undiagnosed rare diseases aimed at identifying clinical pathways and innovative methods to reach diagnosis. Accordingly, the course will:

  • Illustrate methodologies and tools already used internationally and will provide participants with useful examples for the resolution of undiagnosed cases.
  • Provide participants, through the presentation of sample use cases that have long eluded diagnosis, with useful tools, instruments and knowledge on novel strategies to foster solutions of undiagnosed RD cases.
  • Facilitate networking among professionals involved in undiagnosed rare conditions.

The first two days will be dedicated to plenary presentations and Problem-Based Learning, while on the third day a hands-on experience with practical demonstrations of useful bio-informatics resources will be shown to the participants.

A maximum of 30 attendees will be admitted, priority will be given to participants involved in national and international Rare Disease Programs and Projects: Undiagnosed Diseases Network International (UDNI), Solving the Unsolved Rare Diseases (Solve-RD), and the European Reference Networks (ERNs).

Online registration form is available until 26 January 2020!
