Takeda to Host Rare Disease Film Festival

NEC member Takeda will host Selections from DISORDER: The Rare Disease Film Festival at Biotech Week Boston on Thursday, September 12th from 4- 8 pm at Takeda’s ASPIRE Auditorium in Cambridge, MA.

Presented in partnership with Biotech Week Boston and festival cofounders Bo Bigelow and Dan DeFabio, this inspiring event will showcase a curated lineup of films addressing the challenges and struggles patients, and their families, living with a rare disease face on a day-to-day basis.  The selected films aim to build connections between the biopharma community, patient advocacy groups, patients, and those who are passionate about finding cures for rare diseases, which may ultimately lead to new paths for research.

The evening will also feature a Fireside Chat with patients, caregivers, researchers, and industry partners who will discuss the community of hope that unites them and how to work together to propel cures.

Tickets for the event may be purchased here.  Tickets grant attendees full access to the fireside chat, films, and reception.
