We welcome abstracts on topics related to rare diseases (defined as affecting fewer than 200,000 people in the United States). We are now accepting abstracts in five categories:

  1. Scientific – Preclinical
  2. Scientific – Translational
  3. Clinical services and multidisciplinary clinics
  4. Patient advocacy partnerships
  5. Education and training in specialty care

Abstracts should be 400 words or fewer and must be submitted via the abstract submissions webpage by 5 PM Central Time on Monday, December 12

Abstracts will be considered for poster presentation, and a subset of abstracts will be selected for oral presentation. Please plan to attend in person to present your abstract.
