Join our generous sponsors and attendees here to support NTSAD.
For 62 years, NTSAD has been bringing together leaders in the rare disease community to share, learn, network, and collaborate with families, researchers, clinicians and friends. NTSAD’s annual Imagine & Believe is a vital part of this effort.
Through Imagine & Believe we:
- Connect affected families with leaders in research, biotech, medicine, and clinical pursuits with a goal of learning from the past, discussing the state of rare diseases, and building partnerships for the future
- Raise money to fund research, promote and steward these partnerships, and serve our families.
- Bring toghether families, Board members, and attendees who are very well networked in the Boston biotech community, especially in rare diseases. Among them are industry partners, researchers, and clinicians.
Join us in honoring Cynthia Tifft, MD, PhD, Deputy Clinical Director of the National Human Genome Research Institute/NIH. A trusted partner and advisor to NTSAD since 1998, Dr. Cynthia Tifft is an accomplished clinician and scientist, and an extraordinary advocate for the rare disease community. Always prioritizing the children and adults for whom she cares, Dr. Tifft has led an almost 20-year long natural history study for storage disorders laying essential groundwork for clinical trials. Dr. Tifft is the Principal Investigator for a newly opened GM1 gangliosidosis Type II gene therapy clinical trial, a career milestone.
