Abstract

The 1st International Costello Syndrome Research Symposium 2007 was held on July 21st at Doernbecher Children's Hospital at Oregon Health and Science University in Portland, OR (http://cancerucsf.edu/costello2007/). The symposium occurred in conjunction with the Costello Syndrome Family Network (CSFN) conference bringing together clinicians, basic scientists, physician-scientists, advocate leaders, trainees, students and individuals with Costello syndrome (CS) and their families, all of whom shared an underlying interest in this syndrome. The symposium was supported by a R13 grant (HD055817) obtained through the National Institutes of Heath with contributing institutes including National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, the National Cancer Institute, the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke and the Office of Rare Diseases. Additional supporting funds were provided by the Costello Syndrome Family Network, the International Costello Syndrome Support Group and the UCSF Helen Diller Family Comprehensive Cancer Center.
