~For the advancement of understanding and Treating CDKL5 Deficiency Disorder~
IRCN will hold two-day workshop which is organized in partnership with Loulou Foundation, and represents the first event on CDKL5 Deficiency Disorder (CDD) in Japan.
Our overarching goal will be to reach out to CDD patient families and engage the scientific community in new partnerships and knowledge exchange about existing and future pre-clinical and clinical research, as well as promising therapeutic approaches.
