2017 Dublin Cystinosis Workshop was a huge success!
Where: The Royal Marine Hotel, Dun Laoghaire, Co. Dublin
When: February 23rd – 25th, 2017
The purpose of the annual workshop is to raise awareness of cystinosis research in the research community and to bring families together to network, learn, and support one another.
Although this was our 3rd scientific workshop (2nd family workshop), we celebrated many firsts: the first year with a formal poster session, and the first Speed Science event which brought together the Family Workshop and the Scientific Workshop for an hour of information sharing and networking. The feedback from the families after the Speed Science event was overwhelming positive and they asked we pass along their sincerest thanks to the researchers for their participation and genuine enthusiasm.
Cystinosis Ireland is honoured to have had over 20 scientific attendees from 9 different countries and 18 different university and research institutions, as well as over 40 family and extended family members from the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland in attendance!
Thank you for participation at the 3rd Dublin Cystinosis Workshop. We hope you will join us in April 5th – 7th 2018 for our next Dublin Cystinosis Workshop at the Dublin Hilton Hotel – Kilmainham!
