We are very pleased to invite you to attend the Rett Syndrome Symposium and Workshop co-sponsored by the International Rett Syndrome Foundation and the Rett Syndrome Research Trust. The symposium will take place Monday and Tuesday, October 28 and 29, at the Jan and Dan Duncan Neurological Research Institute in Houston. This fall marks the 20th anniversary of the discovery of the genetic basis of Rett syndrome. We are assembling leading investigators to identify key issues that must be addressed in order for us to be in a position to advance effective therapeutic interventions and hopefully celebrate success by the 25th anniversary. A complimentary continental breakfast will be provided both days and a complimentary boxed lunch will be provided the first day. Registration (FREE) is required due to limited seating.
