A Youtube-hosted webinar will take place from 13:00-13:45 (GMT+1/BST) on Friday, May 9th, 2014, to outline the main aspects of the JPND “Rapid Action” Call for Working Groups on Longitudinal Cohorts.

On April 23rd, 2014, JPND announced the launch of a new type of Call – a Call for working groups – to inform cohorts for neurodegenerative disease research.  

This "rapid action" is part of a series of new JPND initiatives, designed to enhance the impact of research by aligning and building upon existing national programmes and initiatives (click here for a call-related interview with the JPND Management Board chair – Prof. Philippe Amouyel).

The May 9th webinar, delivered by the Medical Research Council, UK, will give a brief introduction to the call, and will answer any questions that interested parties may have, such as Working Group composition and submission of proposals.

If you have questions that you would like answered on the Webinar, these can be emailed in advance of, or during the webinar, to [email protected] with the subject line "WEBINAR QUESTION".

You can view the webinar on May 9th via the JPND website (see direct link below).  If you miss the webinar, a recorded Youtube video will be made available on the same page after the webinar has ended.
