The 15th International Conference on NCL (neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis, a.k.a. Batten disease) took place in Boston, Massachusetts on October 5-8, 2016. There are 3 valuable videos and 3 online articles available from this conference at NCL Conference Videos, presented courtesy of BioMarin Pharmaceutical Inc. and Rare Disease Report®. One of the online articles presents the results of the Batten Disease Parent Survey that was conducted during the annual Batten Disease Support and Research Association’s Family Conference in July 2016. These survey results were also presented at this 15th International Conference on NCL, and help clarify the parents’ perspective on their interactions with the professional medical and research community. Lysosomal Disease Network principal investigators Ronald Crystal, M.D. of Weill Cornell Medical College in New York, and Jonathan Mink, M.D., Ph.D. of the University of Rochester Medical Center in New York were among the many outstanding researchers who presented findings at this conference.
