We are delighted to host the fourth Dublin Cystinosis Workshop at which we bring together world-class international scientists from various disciplines to network, share ideas, discuss scientific breakthroughs and to work with the common aim of conquering this rare disease.

We are delighted to welcome scientists from New Zealand, USA, England, Scotland, Belgium, Netherlands, Germany, Italy and of course from Ireland (North and South) to this year’s event. One of our objectives is to consider possible collaborative funding opportunities to tackle research questions that are relevant to cystinosis patients and their families but that are not well addressed by researchers yet.

Hosting this Dublin Cystinosis Workshop would not be possible without the very generous support from public donations received by Cystinosis Ireland. We would also like to acknowledge the additional conference support received from the Health Research Board (HRB) and Science Foundation Ireland (SFI).

Cystinosis Ireland continues to seek new research opportunities in our areas of interest that will bring us closer to improving the treatment of cystinosis, enhancing the lives of those living with the disease and taking one step closer to finding a cure.

We’ve accomplished a lot in the past fifteen years and we will continue to do so until we find a cure. We value and appreciate everyone who helps us in achieving these goals.

We are looking forward to having a productive and engaging workshop and will report back to our families and supporters in due course.
