#S4RMonth activity: The role of genetics in the diagnosis of rare diseases

Online session genetics
New study!

Disease burden of undiagnosed patients from a holistic perspective

Share4Rare launches a set of activities to celebrate Rare Disease Day 2021 (February 28th), a campaign that will take place throughout the month of February. One of the first activities on the calendar is an online session hosted by geneticists Gemma Marfany and Lluís Montoliu that will take place on February 4th. Join us!

In Share4Rare we will celebrate throughout February an initiative within the framework of the activities that will take place globally as part of Rare Disease Day: #S4RMonth. Each week of February will be dedicated to one or several research projects that are currently running on the platform, and we will begin the campaign with the study on the disease burden of undiagnosed patients.

To address this specific issue, we have prepared a sharing activity in which patients, family members, caregivers and organizations can address their questions to two experts in genetics and genetic diagnosis in rare diseases. During the next few days, questions or doubts related to this topic will be collected and will be subsequently shared and answered in a virtual session, which will be held on February 4th at 17:00 CET. In this session, entitled "The role of genetics in the diagnosis of rare diseases", we will enjoy the company and expertise of geneticists Gemma Marfany (UB, CIBERER) and Lluís Montoliu (CNB-CSIC, CIBERER), both researchers with a wide background in the genetic study of rare diseases.

Would you like to participate? Please register through this form and indicate the question you would like to ask the experts. The webinar will have simultaneous Spanish - English translation.

And remember, if you do not have a diagnosis yet or suffer from a rare disease and would like to participate in a collaborative research project, sign up for Share4Rare!
