Course

Molecular Neurodegeneration and Therapeutic Approaches

Molecular Neurodegeneration and Therapeutic Approaches

This popular course will provide an overview of the clinical hallmarks and molecular basis of neurodegenerative disorders. It will highlight the mechanisms behind therapeutic approaches for combating Huntington’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), frontotemporal dementia (FTD) and Alzheimer’s disease. Discussions will also cover bioinformatics techniques used in neurogenetics, and experimental neurodegenerative disease models.

This discussion-based course will be in-person, with some additional live-streamed lectures. The programme will include live Q&A sessions, participant poster presentations and plenty of face-to-face networking opportunities with the course cohort and experts in the field.

Aimed at individuals working in neurodegenerative research, neurogenetics or translational neuroscience. We encourage applications from PhD students, clinical scientists, veterinary scientists, post-doctoral researchers and researchers based in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries.
