The International Symposium of Rett  syndrome 2017 in KOBE

For their future, here is what we can do now. The International Symposium is a platform for sharing a database of the latest therapeutic techniques and the future of Rett Syndrome with experts from overseas.

3 years ago, the Japan Rett Syndrome database was established. Now we have invited researchers, doctors and patient associations from overseas who are working in the leading studies and clinical trials to discuss together about future initiatives. We hope that with these discussions we can help to develop future treatments for the Rett community in Japan.
