This year the ECTS charity event, organized by the ECTS Academy, was dedicated to the Camurati-Engelman disease. The Spanish Camurati-Engelman patient organization attended the meeting and received support from the Beach Volley event and congress participants. Thank you very much for your generosity!
But the ECTS cares of all Rare Bone Diseases and in Valencia we held the First Rare Bone Diseases Patient Group Leaders meeting, which was very fruitful. We heard the needs of patients, discussed how we can help science to progress in this field and what we can do for them. Great meeting and great interest from Patients, Industry and ECTS.
We now want to congratulate all participants who were awarded by the ECTS. We provided named awards for excellence in science, basic and clinical fellowships, new investigator awards, travel grants, poster prizes, onsite selected oral presentations, and more. Visit the ECTS App and website to learn how you can apply and compete next. And thanks to the sponsors who supported in part these awards.
Thanks again ECTS 2018 participants and ECTS members. Keep in touch and let us know what else we can do for you.
