Cystinosis Ireland and the Health Research Board jointly sponsored a workshop on 20-22 June 2014 in Dublin
The purpose of the meeting was to get together a small group of researchers for a short workshop (1 evening and 1 day) to discuss their research activities in cystinosis as well as to consider the outlook and opportunities for research in a European context over the next five years.
