The Cambridge Rare Disease Showcase 2018
On Thursday 16th August, thanks to the generous support of our sponsor Cambridge Healthcare Research, we hired out Baroosh and welcomed just under 40 delegates from the across the rare disease community. Alongside a delicious selection of canapes and prosecco, we also heard from six of our delegates who bravely took on the five-minute lightning talk challenge.
Cambridge is one of the UK’s leading cities for scientific and medical research, with a cluster of patient and advocacy groups, clinicians, life science networks and academics focused on rare diseases. It is also the hometown of Beacon, which is why each year we host one of our Rare Disease Showcases in the heart of the city.
