A Unique Partnering Opportunity for Rare Disease Innovators
January 9th – 11th, 2017

A Catalyzing RARE Community Event
Global Genes is pleased to announce the first-ever RARE in the Square (RITS) hosted January 9 -11, 2017 in San Francisco’s Union Square. The inaugural RITS will coincide with the JP Morgan Healthcare Conference (JPM), creating the opportunity for rare disease focused companies and organizations to network at the epicenter of JPM-related activities in a unique, one-of-a-kind space.
The focus on rare disease innovation continues to increase at the JP Morgan Healthcare Conference. “The rare community involvement and representation at the JPM Healthcare Conference is growing annually,” comments Nicole Boice, CEO and Founder of Global Genes. “However, the rare disease community’s true presence and impact hasn’t been represented at its fullest – until this year. That is why we are so thrilled for the opportunity to partner in conjunction with JPM to provide the much-needed collaborations and visibility in support of rare disease innovation.”
Located in the heart of San Francisco and across the street from The Westin and JPM conference, Union Square provides a unique, distinctive and convenient location. This space lends RITS a platform where investors, industry partners and patient community leaders can connect, network or even just relax amongst fellow rare enthusiasts.
“Patients and their families are the most powerful drivers of the orphan drug development process. They allow us to understand the purpose, the urgency. They allow us to focus and to explain to the many parties involved. They allow us to acquire the passion to succeed and to never give up… Nothing is more important.” – Henri Termeer, Former Chairman, President and CEO, Genzyme Corporation
