The clinical symptoms of neurodegenerative diseases arise years after the onset of neuronal damage. By the time the patient receives a diagnosis, it might be too late to intervene and modify the advanced pathological state of disease. Researchers are now focusing on preventing and stopping the pathological processes in the brain at an earlier, asymptomatic state.

This conference aims to disseminate cutting-edge findings on preclinical neurodegenerative diseases—including Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, and Huntington’s disease. The event will provide a unique platform for specialists to come together across disciplines for an authoritative discussion of the methodological, regulatory, and ethical considerations of research in people at asymptomatic states of neurodegenerative disease.

Posters are invited to supplement the invited oral programme. Please submit abstracts on the following topics by June 3, 2016.

    Genetic factors, cellular pathways, and neuronal vulnerability
    Environmental factors, epidemiology, and primary prevention
    Biomarkers and early diagnosis
    Prevention through therapeutics
    Trials; regulatory and ethical considerations

The event will also have a translational focus, exploring genetic susceptibility, epidemiology and risk factors, neuronal vulnerability, biomarkers and early diagnosis, and disease prevention in healthy individuals with both pharmacological and non-pharmacological interventions.

Attendance at this meeting will enable you to:

    Be part of a rich scientific programme incorporating the latest developments in preclinical neurodegenerative diseases
    Understand the shift towards prevention and early diagnosis of neurodegenerative disease as the future of research in the field
    Join key opinion leaders in discussing regulatory and ethical implications of this research in clinical practice.
    Network with speakers and other leading experts across disciplines.
