The aim of the colloquium is to present the results of the winning projects in the East, encourage meetings and the sharing of experience between players, and encourage the emergence of new research projects.
Event organized in association with the Sensgene network and the O'Rares reference center.

Exceptional conference for the general public by Pr Jean-Louis MANDEL
To mark International Rare Disease Day and conclude our regional scientific symposium, we are honored to welcome Pr Jean-Louis Mandel for an exceptional conference open to the general public.
Rare diseases represent a major public health challenge, affecting one person in 20, i.e. over 3 million people in France and 300 million worldwide. Half of all rare diseases affect children under the age of 5, and are responsible for 10% of deaths between the ages of 1 and 5. In 50% of cases, they result in motor, sensory or intellectual deficits.
International Rare Disease Day 2020 gives participants the opportunity to become part of a global movement to encourage policy-makers, researchers, companies and healthcare professionals to involve patients more often and more effectively in the discussion on rare diseases.
Together, across borders, it is essential to ensure more equitable access to diagnosis, treatment, care and social opportunities.
Rare diseases: from patient to drug
One person in 20 is affected by a rare disease. More than 7,000 different rare diseases have been characterized to date, and 5 new ones are discovered every week.
Rare diseases are diverse, but all people affected by a rare disease share the same obstacle course: diagnostic wandering, therapeutic wandering, difficulties in daily life. These diseases have a major impact on the whole family: 70% of affected parents suffer from depression or psychological disorders, 61% of sufferers have had to stop working, and 20% of affected children do not attend school.
These difficulties are compounded by the lack of therapeutic solutions: 97% of rare diseases have no cure. Yet research is advancing: over 200 new therapies have been developed, and the International Rare Disease Research Consortium (IRDIRC) is aiming to develop a further 1,000 treatments by 2027.
