NeuroD2

Mechanisms in Neurodevelopment and Neurodegeneration — From Molecules to Medicine

Welcome

Dear colleagues,

We are pleased to invite you to the NeuroD2 symposium Mechanisms in Neurodevelopment and Neurodegeneration — From Molecules to Medicine in Aarhus, Denmark, November 26-27, 2015. Join us to present your most recent research on neurogenesis and degenerative disorders of the brain and meet your colleagues.

The scientific program covers a broad range of topics including:

  • Striatal neurogenesis
  • Differentiation of specific types of neurons
  • Induced pluripotent stem cells and embryonic stem cells as model systems
  • Disease mechanisms of Huntington disease and Parkinson disease
  • Expanded CAG repeat mRNAs
  • Brain pathologies of neurodegenerative disorders
  • Development of novel therapeutic approaches for neurodegenerative disorders

Internationally renowned experts have accepted our invitation to give a lecture. A poster session allows you to network and engage with colleagues in an active discussion about your research.

Program

We look forward to welcoming you to Aarhus.
