To mark the end of the FlySMALS consortium, which was funded in the 2013 JPND Cross-Disease Analysis call, project partners are now organising a workshop on integrative approaches in neurodegeneration.

The workshop, which will take place in Lisbon, Portugal, from 21-23 June 2018, 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 programme targets a broad audience of basic, experimental, computational and clinical scientists, in the spirit of the JPND 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 in molecular pathways underlying neurodegenerative diseases

The workshop will bring together 20 invited speakers and 50 registered participants, providing opportunities for dynamic interactions and exchange of expertise across areas. Participants will be able to present their work at a poster session and in short talks from selected abstracts.
