November 2018

Neurodegenerative Diseases, Biology and Therapeutics
Sponsor: Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory
Description: Rational drug discovery for neurodegenerative diseases has begun to yield compounds and treatments that are now entering clinical settings. For human studies utilizing these compounds and treatments to be maximally informative, it is crucial that scientists from academia and industry meet regularly to exchange data and ideas. A primary goal of the meeting is to provide a forum where medical scientists from academia can interact with scientists from the biopharmaceutical industry.
Location: Cold Spring Harbor, NY
Date: November 28-December 1, 2018
Abstracts Due: September 14, 2018
