Did you know that The Rare Disease Showcase Series 2023 already began back in June with the outstanding Cambridge Rare Disease Showcase? It’s true! We saw over 70 rare disease leaders attend, making it our largest Cambridge Showcase to date! If you missed our annual networking evening in Cambridge, don’t miss our full-day conference in London!
