2nd Family and Research Conference

2020 Family Conference cancellation

We are excited to announce our 2nd family and research conference.

In collaboration with Simons Searchlight, we will have a joint family and research conference with 3 other patient organizations that present similarly to ours.

When?

  • Thursday, August 6th - Scientific Day for Researchers
  • Friday, August 7th - 9th - Family Conference and Research Projects

Where?
Hyatt Regency Baltimore Inner Harbor
300 Light Street
Baltimore, MD 21202

Cost?
Attending families will be responsible for their travel and hotel costs (which will be negotiated at a reasonable rate by Simons Searchlight). However, we are currently speaking with a donor who may sponsor the hotel room costs for our families. Please stay tuned. Families will be expected to register for the conference by the designated date (Date to be determined shortly). Registration is not open yet. Good news, there will be NO registration fee for families.

Why?
The Simons Searchlight program is built on the belief that changes in the genes associated with autism and neurodevelopmental disorders cause both unique clinical features within each group but also many similar challenges. We are hopeful that scientific breakthroughs in one rare genetic condition can accelerate progress for other disorders. Bringing together multiple gene groups for this meeting will offer families the opportunity to connect with others sharing their same genetic finding, and also the chance to learn from other groups and participate in research projects looking across conditions. CSNK2A1 Foundation believes that collaboration across similar conditions and groups will accelerate research that will benefit us all.

We are excited to see you all!
