Provisional programme

maandag 27 november 2017 - woensdag 29 november 2017 00:00 - 00:00

RASopathies are a class of developmental disorders with overlapping clinical features as well as genetic mutations. RASopathies are associated with dysregulation of the RAS-MAPK (Ras/mitogen activated protein kinase) signalling pathway, an important pathway in humans as it is related to nine different genetic conditions and in many cancers.

The meeting will bring together leading scientists, clinicians, researchers and trainee health care professionals in the field of genetics, cancer, neurology, paediatrics, cardiology, surgery, dermatology and biomedical sciences from across the world. This is the first meeting on RASopathies being held in Asia. The aim of the conference is to ensure that health professionals and scientists are kept abreast of any new developments in clinical practice and also to identify therapeutic targets for several of these rare diseases.
