Charles River’s 2nd Annual World Congress brings together industry leaders for a two-day conference that includes a mix of presentations, panel discussions and short technology talks covering a wide range of strategies for successful drug discovery. While the focus of the conference is rare diseases and personalised medicine across various therapeutic areas, there will be a broader discussion around drug discovery approaches and innovative therapeutic modalities that are being employed in the rare disease space.   

Here are a few reasons why you should register:

  • The speakers: Learn from and network with the 18 scientists and patient advocates from academia, industry, and foundations including keynote lectures from speakers with the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and AFM-Telethon.
  • Charles River Annual Research Award: We are proud to honor a young patient-entrepreneur, David Hysong, founder of Shepherd Therapeutics, whose mission is to develop new therapies for rare cancers.
  • Networking: Meet and discuss cutting-edge science and technology platforms with top scientists and entrepreneurs from the Greater Boston area.
  • Patient advocacy: Meet Mike Porath, a journalist who founded theMighty.com, and Mark Dant – whose story was featured on 60 Minutes, CBS News and other media outlets.

This conference is truly groundbreaking in the depth and breadth of cutting-edge science, combined with inspirational stories of patients and their caregivers.

You have two options for attending the conference:

Option 1: Virtual attendance

Option 2: In person
