Rare Disease Day is an observance held on the last day of February to raise awareness for rare diseases and improve access to treatment and medical representation for individuals with rare diseases and their families. The College of Science and the Boler-Parseghian Center for Rare and Neglected Diseases celebrate the importance of this day with an annual Rare Disease Research Conference. We invite you to join us for the 15th Annual Conference on Advancing Rare Disease Research on February 29 (105 Jordan Hall of Science) and March 1 (Embassy Suites-Notre Dame, 1140 E.
