Title: ‘Supporting the innovation and exploitation activities of transnational research projects on rare diseases’

The registration is free but mandatory; please register here.

The webinar will provide an overview of the process and challenge of translating knowledge into patient benefit, and raise awareness of the tools, services and expert support available to translational researchers in the RD field through the European Joint Programme on Rare Diseases. Topics covered include good practice and pitfalls in the areas of therapies and diagnostic development, reaching pre-clinical and clinical proof-of-concept, and innovation funding aspects, which are all needed to support rigorous, patient-centric translational research.

The webinar will explain how to make use of the services offered and added value for researchers that will in the future need to take next steps towards the patient. A live question-and-answer session will allow participants the opportunity for real-time guidance and follow-up. If interested after the webinar, rare disease projects could have bilateral, exploratory meetings with EATRIS.

Speakers include:

Toni Andreu MD PhD – Scientific Director EATRIS

Giovanni Migliaccio – Senior Regulatory Advisor

Elena Beltrami – Technology Transfer Manager Fondazione Telethon
