Neurodegeneration Conference 2012

This conference will focus on recent advances in neurodegenerative diseases, ranging from basic science to clinical and pharmaceutical developments, and will highlight current understanding of underlying mechanisms, new research directions, and therapeutic strategies. The conference will span Alzheimer's and other dementias twenty years since formulation of the amyloid cascade hypothesis, Parkinson's disease, prion diseases, as well as interactions and common mechanisms among neurodegenerative diseases. New concepts in any aspect of neurodegeneration/regeneration are, however, welcomed.
Featured will be plenary lectures from leading investigators, oral presentations from selected abstracts, and poster sessions covering each of the topics. Participation of younger scientists is particularly encouraged and there will be ample opportunity for informal discussions to develop new collaborations in an attractive environment on the Riviera Maya.
