A workshop preceding the ESHG meeting Barcelona, 2016

Fifteen years after the discovery of the first gene for Noonan syndrome, RASopathy research is relentlessly producing exciting new insights into molecular and clinical aspects of this important group of genetic disorders. Following a tradition that started in Barcelona in 2009, we announce the 6th International Meeting on Rare Disorders of the RAS-MAPK Pathway in Barcelona in May 2016.

The mission of this workshop is to bring together researchers from various fields as well as clinicians and family support groups, to provide a timely update about recent achievements, to discuss and coordinate ongoing research activities, and to set milestones for improved patient management and care.

Major Topics:

New genes, new phenotypes, and genotype phenotype correlations                

• Cancer risk in RASopathies

• Mosaic RASopathies

Molecular mechanisms

• RASopathy modeling & treatment

RASopathy support group activities

Short contributions: Participants are invited to present their own research. Please contact the organisers.

A final programme will soon be circulated and placed on the ESGH website
