Past Events


The Nicholas Conor Institute 1st Annual Event, Life Out Loud,  honored children who are battling with various forms of cancer and for whom treatments that are based upon the molecular makeup of their respective cancer and their individual genetic profiles are being developed. The event is being hosted by Life Technologies in Carlsbad, CA on September 13, 2010.


The Nicholas Conor Institute (TNCI) participated in UCSD's Innovation Day Expo and Symposium (IDEaS) on February 25, 2011. The expo featured live demonstrations, hands-on exhibits and the opportunity to engage and network with the innovators themselves.

The Nicholas Conor Institute (TNCI) participated in World Rare Disease Day on February 28th. There are currently just over 7,000 rare diseases identified, affecting 30 million people in the US alone. Although these numbers are staggering, what is of even greater concern is that approximately 75% of those affected are children. For more information go to  the Global Genes Project website.

was an official collaborator of the San Diego Science Festival Expo Day that took place on March 26, 2011 at PETCO Park. The festival was the largest celebration of science on the West Coast and offered content-rich, interactive learning experiences for "kids"of all ages.
