Gordon Research Conference on Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) and Related Motor Neuron Diseases
Sponsor: Gordon Research Conferences
Description: The goal of this meeting is to provide a dynamic forum for the active exchange of new discoveries and research tools in the advancing field of motor neuron diseases. The conference will bring together experts in a wide range of basic, clinical and translational neuroscience to discuss advances in the progress of understanding common and rare motor neuron diseases. Exciting new areas of research in these disease include dysfunction in RNA metabolism and protein homeostasis, with specific defects in nucleocytoplasmic trafficking, induction of endoplasmic reticulum stress, and impaired dynamics of ribonucleoprotein bodies such as RNA granules. In addition, the use and validation of imaging modalities, such as PET, as well as large population multi-omics data generation, to identify and validate dysfunctional pathways in animal models and patients, as well as the development of new therapies and biomarkers will be discussed. Applications for this meeting must be submitted by June 25, 2017, but please apply early, as some meetings become oversubscribed (full) before this deadline. Preliminary program will be available by November 15, 2016 - please check the conference's website for updates.
