2013 Chordoma Conferences

On March 21 & 22 the Stephan L Harris Center for Chordoma Care at MGH hosted the Chordoma Foundation’s 2013 Research Workshop followed on March 22-24 by the 2013 Community Conference.


The Research Workshop featured plenary presentations on topics including chordoma genetics and genomics, molecular pathology, model development, preclinical treatment development, clinical research, and treatment advances.


The Chordoma Community Conferences brings together patients, families, researchers and physicians to share progress, exchange ideas and build a network of support for those affected by chordoma, as well as those working to find a cure. The major goal of the conferences are to provide patients and caregivers information to be empowered self-advocates and to understand their very important role in finding more effective treatments and ultimately a cure for this neglected disease.
