On May 17-18th 2018, University of Birmingham, as part of Birmingham Health Partners, hosted our first Rare Diseases Symposium.

The University of Birmingham together with University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and Birmingham Women’s and Children’s Foundation Trust have outstanding expertise and capabilities in rare diseases with over 500 scientists and clinicians working on over 1,000 different rare diseases. The Birmingham Rare Disease Symposium brought together this expertise and assisted in establishing collaborations between Birmingham rare disease researchers, industry, patient organisations and funders to improve care for patients.
