2nd Biennial International

Lafora Disease Workshop

We are pleased to announce the 2nd Biennial International Lafora Workshop to be held June 23rd  – 24th  at the Sanford Consortium for Regenerative Medicine on the campus of UCSD in La Jolla, California.

At the 1st Lafora Workshop in June, 2014, fifteen scientists, including most of the world’s leading Lafora researchers, convened to discuss ways in which collaboration might accelerate progress toward a cure.  Since then, the group has formed the Lafora Epilepsy Cure Initiative (LECI) and has begun successful collaborative grant writing.  This year, the group has grown to over 40 research participants.  The workshop will again be sponsored by Chelsea’s Hope, an advocacy group for Lafora patients and their families.  This year, additional funding is being provided by the National Institute of Health, and Ionis Pharmaceuticals.
