About the course

RASopathies are a class of developmental disorders with overlapping clinical features as well as genetic mutations. RASopathies are associated with dysregulation of the RAS-MAPK (RAS/mitogen activated protein kinase) signalling pathway, an important pathway in humans as it is related to nine different genetic conditions and in many cancers. The meeting will bring together leading scientists, clinicians, researchers and trainee health care professionals in the field of genetics, cancer, neurology, paediatrics, cardiology, neurosurgery, craniofacial surgery, plastic surgery, dermatology, oncology and biomedical sciences from across the world.
