Key note speaker will be Prof. Adrian Bird, discussing The Biology of Rett Syndrome

This virtual event will feature presentations by scientists and clinicians who are experts on TBRS, DNMT3A (the gene that causes TBRS), epigenetics, overgrowth and neurodevelopmental disorders, and related topics. The goals of the meeting are to foster discussion among this group of scholars and develop research priorities for understanding and, ultimately, treating TBRS. The conference will be a mix of pre-recorded talks, live Q&As, and open discussion forums. To encourage collaboration and allow for the presentation of preliminary data and work in progress, this event is not open to the public.

TBRS Community is putting out a call for posters for the Conference! We are looking for presentations that reflect research on either Tatton Brown Rahman Syndrome, DNMT3a, or related issues. Please submit through this link. Rules for submission are linked here.

Please email [email protected] if you would like an invitation to the meeting.

Thanks to our generous funders, registration is free. We appreciate your donations to help us continue valuable programming to advance TBRS research. Donate here.
