Spark Therapeutics Announces Sponsorship of Believe Limited’s First-Ever Science Fair for the Hemophilia Community at 2019 National Hemophilia Foundation’s Bleeding Disorders Conference
“Traveling around the country producing educational programs and meeting families, we identified a growing hunger for an understanding of the science behind our bleeding disorders from community members of all ages,” said Patrick James Lynch, chief executive officer,
The exhibit’s modules will combine the interactivity of a science center exhibit with the style of a classic school science fair. A scientific advisory panel of key clinicians is helping guide the educational messaging of each module, and community members will be invited to contribute to the final program. For more information on how you can participate in this year’s science fair, please visit www.TheScienceFair.org.

This novel collaboration aims to spark the community’s curiosity to understand the underlying science of their disease, so they feel empowered to ask the right questions and make informed decisions related to their medical care,” said
Following the launch at NHF BDC 2019,
