Ataxia UK's Research department regularly attend conferences at which ataxia is relevant, including those held by Rare Disease UK, Genetic Alliance, Findacure and many other such organisations. We do this to collaborate with as many organisations as possible, raising awareness of ataxia whilst contributing to research.
International Ataxia Research Conferences (IARC) are held every two years and hosted in a different country every time. Ataxia researchers from across the world come together to share the latest news and results of research.
The first IARC was held in 2015 at Windsor (UK), and hosted by Ataxia UK. It was the largest conference on ataxia ever held, and was incredibly successful.
Ataxia UK together with FARA and GoFAR organised the second edition of International Ataxia Research conference, held in Pisa in September 2017. This was the largest research conference on ataxia ever organised.Read more
