Understanding Energy for a Cure Symposium ***CANCELLED***

Understanding Energy for a Cure Symposium ***CANCELLED***

On Thursday, September 14, 2017 Save to calendar

The FARA Energy Ball on Sept 16th will be taking place as scheduled.

FA Research is a global effort and involves diverse projects and approaches from the lab bench to the clinic. One key feature of the FA research community is collaboration and partnership. We will introduce you to some academic and industry researchers working on FA to demonstrate the range and depth of research projects needed to advance treatments for the condition. In this symposium, you will also learn about each investigator’s personal commitment and passion for FA science and meet a dynamic patient panel who will share their own perspectives on research.
