Webinars

EURO-NMD provide educational webinars on a monthly basis to increase the knowledge around different specialist areas related to the neuromuscular field. Each webinar lasts approximately one hour with the opportunity for viewers to ask questions on the subject area.

The recordings and slides will be available on the EURO-NMD website for viewers to refer to or in case someone who has expressed an interest is unable to make the live webinar.

As part of a close working relationship between EURO-NMD and RD-Connect three informative webinars were organised for those researchers involved in ERNs. Recording of these three webinars can now be found below.

We are also collaborating with the European Reference Network for Rare Neurological diseases (ERN-RND) and the European Academy of Neurology (EAN). You can also view webinars from ERN-RND listed below (and on their website by clicking here) and we will include more information on how to register for these webinars in due course.

If you have a particular subject you would like to present about please contact Chloe Blewitt who will find a suitable date and time.


We currently have some flexible time slots available for any relevant webinars.

Marco Roos, Leiden University Medical Center, The Netherlands
Wednesday 26 September 2018

This video will explain what makes data Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable (FAIR) and why it is critical that different types of information, such as medical records, clinical and phenotypic data, test results, sequencing data and biosample details are made FAIR at the source.


Mary Wang, Fondazione Telethon, Milan, Italy
Tuesday 18 September 2018

This video demonstrates how to use two tools that will help you quickly identify patient registries in Europe and beyond that hold data on your disease of interest. They also let you find rare disease biobanks and browse their sample collections, with detailed information about each individual sample.


Steven Laurie, Centro Nacional de Análisis Genómico, Barcelona, Spain
Thursday 6th September 2018

This video will demonstrate how to use the powerful and user-friendly analysis tools in the GPAP to interpret, filter and prioritise your variants to identify disease-causing mutations and help diagnose your rare disease patients. The system also allows you to compare your data with data submitted by other members of the RD-Connect community, and further afield, to find confirmatory cases for your candidate variants.
