Drug Repurposing for Rare Diseases 2021

Date & Time 15-16 June 2021 at 12:00 CEST
Address Virtual

The annual repurposing conference highlights the best examples of repurposing in the field of rare diseases. An event distinctive in its collaborative and multi-stakeholder focus, the conference invites patient groups, researchers, medical professionals and industry representatives to showcase innovative repurposing projects and encourage conversation between all members of the rare disease field.

Naturally, this year’s conference will be a little different. COVID-19 has forced it online, but in grabbing the world’s attention, it has also become the poster boy for the power of drug repurposing. In a matter of months, scientists successfully repurposed dexamethasone to treat COVID-19, so why can’t the same urgency be applied to rare diseases?

With awareness of drug repurposing at an all-time high, we have a unique opportunity to drive forward the agenda, demonstrate the potential of repurposing for rare diseases, and bring about lasting change for patients around the globe.

The event is for free! Register here.
