EMBO|EMBL Symposium: Mechanisms of Neurodegeneration

14th June 2017 - 17th June 2017
Heidelberg, Germany


This symposium will focus on the molecular basis of major neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimera€™s Disease, Parkinsona€™s Disease, Huntingtona€™s Disease, Frontotemporal Lobar Degeneration and Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, with a strong emphasis on mechanism based drug development. The meeting will cover the various molecular mechanisms linked to these diseases, including RNA biology, nuclear transport, protein processing, protein aggregation and protein folding. The symposium will also address the genetic components underlying neurodegeneration and the involvement of innate immune responses, discuss disease biomarkers and therapeutic options, as well as using animal models for studying neurodegenerative disease.
