The Symposium will feature presentations from a mix of academic and industry speakers from the pharmaceutical and biotechnology communities as well as key opinion leaders from foundations committed to the identification, treatment and cure of rare diseases. Participants will also have the opportunity to present and / or participate in poster sessions on the complexities of rare disease drug discovery.
