Metrion Biosciences will be attending Cure CLCN4 Scientific Conference 2024 which is taking place in London at the beginning of June 2024.
Metrion will have delegate representation at the event. If you would like to arrange a meeting with the Metrion Team please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
CLCN4-related neurodevelopmental condition (CLCN4-NDC) is a rare X-linked genetic disorder that leads to intellectual disability and other problems such as epilepsy, behavioural disorders, movement disorders and microcephaly. CLCN4-NDC is caused by mutations in the CLCN4 gene, which encodes the ClC-4 protein, a 2Cl-/H+ ion channel expressed in intracellular compartments in a wide variety of tissues, but prominently in the brain and skeletal muscle. The extent and severity of CLCN4-related condition, which has so far been reported in just over 120 individuals worldwide, is very variable, depending on the type of gene change, the gender of the affected individual, the pathophysiological impact of the genetic change and, as yet, incompletely understood factors. Overall, there is currently little understanding of the basic biology of CIC-4 and no appropriate therapeutic options.
Now in its third instalment, the Cure CLCN4 Scientific Conference is set to reconvene in London, continuing its goal of providing the opportunity of the year for researchers and clinicians working on CLCN4-related condition and related areas to meet in person, network, and engage in in-depth discussions about the latest research and advancements in the field. Through short talks and panel discussions, the entire research spectrum will be explored, from fundamental animal and cellular model studies to the latest developments in clinical research, drug discovery, and precision medicine. Adding a new dimension to this year’s conference, there will be keynote talks from the recipients of the Cure CLCN4 Pilot Grant Program.
