2018 looks to be filling up with conferences that members of the ‘rare disease section’ of the skeletal research group at IGM will be presenting at
it is rare disease day and in addition to IGM’s annual flagship In February event, Mike will be talking at Genetics Matters Findacure’s 2018 Drug Repurposing for Rare Diseases Conference.
Kasia will be talking at the Bone Research Society and the OARSI young investigators pre-congress workshop entitled In April “Lessons from Rare Diseases in Bone & Cartilage”.
In May Mike will be talking at pre-congress sessions at The European Calcified Tissue Society (ECTS) Annual Meeting. He will present at a working shop on cartilage pathophysiology and EU consortia.
Mike will be speaking within the In June Rare Bone Disease Workshop, taking place during the Bone Research Society Annual Meeting being held at the University of Winchester, 27-29 June 2018.
Mike will be talking at In July Matrix Biology Europe 2018.

Many thanks Anders for a great time!……..good company, good beer and great science
Aggrecan, spondyloepimetaphyseal dysplasia, osteochondritis dissecans
not to mention that burger to die for!
skeletal genetics@newcastle university will be participating in two key events for
Rare Disease Day 2015
IGMEngagement@ncl.ac.uk and @IGMengageNCL
We will be presenting our best research in genetics and rare diseases, answering questions, engaging in debates and presenting hands on research tables. There are over 7,000 known rare diseases, most of which are genetic.
1 in 17 people will be affected by a rare disease at some point in their lives. This amounts to a staggering 3.5 million people in the UK alone! Genetic research and research into Rare Diseases may not attract much media attention but it is of high importance for the modern developed societies.
Come see us at the Great North Museum on the 27th February 2015 (Rare Disease Day) to learn more
