Rare Disease Symposium July 18, 2018, Iona College
Co-Chairs: Antonio Molina-Pachon, Ph.D., Founder and CEO, Advanced Medical Projects
       David Zuckerman, Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Biology, Iona College
This meeting of Rare Disease underscored key regional resources and challenges in addressing the 7,000+ diseases that impact fewer than 200,000 US patients. Now in the early stages, the Westchester Rare Disease Research Hub flows from the need for a soft landing environment for international researchers as they establish a presence in the US community and market. The concept mirrors existing incubator/accelerator models with particular focus on the strengths of regional researchers and companies.
