Rare Diseases in Translational and Personalized Medicine

when 28 June 2021 - 17 July 2021
language English
duration 3 weeks
credits 5 EC
fee EUR 584

Birth to adulthood. Most rare diseases are genetic diseases, and while they are individually rare, their collective impact on populations and healthcare systems is huge and often underestimated. Due to their low prevalence, medical expertise and research in rare disease are limited, and it is scattered across clinics and laboratories worldwide. This scarcity of expertise and practice translates into delayed diagnosis, few medical drugs and investments, obstacles to medical care and sometime social stigmatization.

The course will include lectures from national and international experts and instructors from various research fields and disciplines, and it is directed at students from various educational backgrounds. During the course, we will cover recent research and innovative approaches to studying and diagnosing rare diseases and developing new treatment options.
