The Workshop in Integrative Approaches in Neurodegeneration is organized in the frame of the FlySMALS consortium, funded by the 2013 JPND Transnational call for “European research projects for Cross-Disease Analysis of Pathways related to Neurodegenerative Diseases”, which come to an end this year. The workshop aims to disseminate and integrate the results of the research consortium with state-of-the-art research in the field, promoting the joint presentation and discussion of relevant research topics by a panel of international experts, including members of other consortia funded through the same JPND call.
The program targets a broad audience of basic, experimental, computational and clinical scientists, in the spirit of the JNPD Cross-Disease Analysis call, aiming to:
- promote the analysis of diseases across traditional clinical boundaries;
- combine fundamental, pre-clinical and clinical experimental approaches with computational approaches;
- re-define clinical phenotypes and new approaches in the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases;
- identify commonalities and differences molecular pathways underlying neurodegenerative diseases.
The workshop will bring together 20 invited speakers and 50 registered participants, providing an ideal environment for dynamic interactions promoting the exchange of expertise across areas, supporting the conceptual development of novel integrative research approaches that will contribute to the future progress in neurodegenerative disease research. Participants will be able to present their work at a poster section and through short talks from selected abstracts.
