Whether you are working in a team dedicated to Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, Lewy Body Dementia or a rare neurodegenerative disorder, this intimate, industry-led forum is not only an opportunity to learn from those pioneering this space, but to network and build meaningful partnerships with over 150 neurodegenerative drug development experts. After all, collaboration in this industry is pivotal! Across 3 action-packed, case-study driven days, and 2 parallel tracks of learning, we present the opportunity to join us online in 2021 to overcome the challenges preventing you and your team from translating promising preclinical research into evidenced clinical benefit. The digital agenda will address the following hot topics and translational challenges: Discover diverse approaches to regeneration therapeutics with Aspen Neuroscience and Neuronascent, and explore cellular approaches to neurodegenerative drug discovery with Noveome Hear novel approaches to developing protein misfolding-specific therapies for the treatment of neurodegeneration with ProMis Neurosciences and Origami Therapeutics Evaluate pioneering approaches to clinical design for ALS with Harvard Medical School and hear how Roche are targeting Alpha-Synuclein to design the next-generation of clinical trials Investigate post-translational modifications as a new therapeutic approach for CNS disorders with Circumvent Pharmaceuticals and hear how Stoke Therapeutics are developing a unique therapeutic approach to tackle neurodegenerative disorders using antisense oligonucleotides Explore the implementation of novel blood-based biomarkers, evaluate the role of CNS exosomes in diagnosing AD and PD and assess an encyclopedia of available biomarkers for neurodegenerative diseases with Zetterberg, the EMA, Eli Lilly and Company, Rissman and Teunissen Unpack the role that genetics play in neurodegenerative diseases and explore emerging new gene therapies for CNS indications with Eisai and Brain Neurotherapy Bio With its most discussion-led format yet, the Neurodegenerative Drug Development provides unrivalled networking opportunities for you to catch up with friendly faces and make new connections to establish future partnerships.
