Official press release:
CRN is pleased to announced that its 2011 Family Conference will be held July 14-16, 2011 at the Hotel Nikko in San Francisco, California.

Please plan to join us to reconnect and learn more about new research findings, receive updates from cystinosis organizations from around the world, meet and renew friendships with other families, have the opportunity to participate in research studies, and interact one on one with many of the world expert clinicians treating and researching cystinosis today.

Ideally located in the very heart of the city, Hotel Nikko is a short walk from fine shops, theaters and restaurants at Union Square. We are so fortunate to meet in San Francisco in 2011, a beautiful city which will provide a wonderful backdrop for our community to gather.
Registration materials will be available in early 2011 on the CRN website and will also be mailed to families. Our gracious host family for next year’s event will be Rich and Mary Jordan. They already have some remarkable plans in store for us, we thank them and the rest of the planning committee for committing to staging this wonderful event. See you all in San Francisco!
