Neurodegenerative diseases are some of the greatest challenges faced by modern medicine. To find effective therapies for these conditions, we will need to improve our understanding of why neurodegeneration occurs and what events kickstart the process of nerve cell death.

Our online event, The Origin of Neurodegeneration, features an expert panel who will review innovative research that could lead to a deeper understanding of the basics of nerve cell function and failure. Featuring cutting-edge research and in-depth discussion, this event is not to be missed!

By attending this roundtable discussion, you will learn about: 

  • How neurodegeneration begins at the cellular level
  • The cellular processes that lead to pathological protein aggregation in the brain
  • The future of neurodegenerative research

Featuring on the panel discussion:
