Meeting Calendar


March 2019

The Impact of Glial Cell Diversity on Health and Disease
Sponsor: Gordon Research Conference
Description: Glial cells are essential elements within the nervous system that shape key aspects of development, function and disease. This Glial Biology GRC meeting will focus on new evidence emerging from genomic and functional studies about the specific roles of different glial cell types in the control of neural circuits and behavior, as well as disease progression and neurodegeneration.
Location: Ventura, CA
Date: March 3-8, 2019
Abstracts Due: February 3, 2019

June 2019

Neural Environment in Disease, Glial Responses and Neuroinflammation
Sponsor: Keystone Symposia
Description: The goal of this meeting will be to bring together people who study different aspects of neurological diseases and facilitate the interchange of ideas necessary for identifying new mechanisms underlying complex intercellular interactions in the diseased nervous system.
Location: Keystone, CO
Date: June 16-20, 2019
Abstracts Due: February 13, 2019 (early)

Neurodegenerative Diseases, New Insights and Therapeutic Opportunities
Sponsor: Keystone Symposia
Description: This conference aims to address the current state of knowledge in neurodegenerative diseases, to provide advanced discussion of these topics, to provide the opportunity for interaction between scientists from different fields of research and foster new collaborations that may lead to new therapeutic opportunities to combat the coming crisis in providing medical care for those suffering from neurodegenerative diseases.
Location: Keystone, Colorado
Date: June 16-19, 2019
Abstracts Due: February 13, 2019 (early)

July 2019

Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) and Related Motor Neuron Diseases
Sponsor: Gordon Research Conference
Description: This meeting will bring together clinicians, trainees, and renowned scientists from both academia and industry to address fundamental questions surrounding the pathogenesis and treatment of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and related motor neurons diseases such as spinal muscular atrophy (SMA), progressive muscular atrophy (PMA), and multisystem proteinopathy (MSP). The overall aim of this conference is to share insights from a variety of perspectives to achieve a better mutual understanding of pathogenic mechanisms and potential therapeutic approaches.
Location: West Dover, VT
Date: July 21-26, 2019
Abstracts Due: June 23, 2019
