Dravet Syndrome Foundation Spain and the Dravet Syndrome Advanced Therapies European Working Group (DS ATEWG), formed by top scientist in the field of advanced therapies for Dravet syndrome and related disorders, organise the first edition of the European Dravet Syndrome Advanced Therapies (EDSAT) Meeting, a 1-day satellite meeting to the Dravet Syndrome Conference 2022.
This meeting will take place in person on Friday 1st of April 2022 in Madrid, Spain, and registration is free of charge but mandatory for organisational reasons. Registration also includes free access to the networking dinner the evening before. However, to maximise networking opportunities, this event is limited to 50 attendees, who will be processed on a first-come, first-served basis.
In November 2020, the Dravet Syndrome Foundation Spain launched a pioneer and international initiative to bring together European experts in advanced therapies for Dravet syndrome, the DS ATEWG. Through a scientific and multidisciplinary forum focused on collaboration and cooperation, this initiative aims to remove barriers between institutions to advance fundamental and translational science in Dravet syndrome for advanced therapies.
This international networking event, to be held in Madrid, Spain, on Friday 1st of April 2022, will provide an excellent opportunity to meet friends and colleagues, foster new relationships and collaborations, and develop strategies for efficient and productive scientific outcomes.
Scientists will share first-hand information about their most recent advances in advanced therapies and Dravet syndrome research. In addition, attendees will learn from and discuss with guest industry regulatory and clinical experts in product and clinical development.
Overall, EDSAT Meeting will be an ideal platform for exchange and networking, where students, early career scientists, leading investigators, policy makers, pharmaceutical industry and other sectors in healthcare converge and collaborate for the common goal of promoting Dravet syndrome research and patient access to advanced therapies.
The EDSAT Meeting will be held at the Gregorio Marañón lecture hall of the Illustrious Official College of Physicians of Madrid, located less than 5-minute walk away from Paseo del Prado and Atocha station, and has received funding from the European Joint Programme on Rare Diseases (EJP RD).
