Thursday, October 29th, 2020 from 12:30-4:30 pm EST
Please join us for a once in a life-time opportunity to come together to help #curekrabbe. KrabbeConnect initiated an Externally-Led Patient Focused Drug Development (EL-PFDD) meeting for the Krabbe disease community. This meeting, coordinated and facilitated by the National Organization for Rare Disorders, will be conducted virtually on Thursday, October 29th, 2020 from 12:30-4:30 pm EST.
What is the purpose of the EL-PFDD meeting?
