Abstract submissions are welcome for consideration for the 2nd International UAE Rare Disease Society Congress, which will be held in Hilton  Yas Island Abu Dhabi, UAE from  February 29 to March 2, 2024.

We are aiming for high-quality fundamental scientific, translational, or clinical research on all areas of rare disease illnesses. Original contributions are appreciated, however work offering an overview of a certain topic will be considered. We also accept early data from ongoing research, theoretical work, and publications on innovative theories. The primary assessment criteria are the quality of the study, the topic’s relevance to our audience, and the influence on the field.
