    Research Abstract

    This 2nd Zing neurodegeneration conference (co-Chaired by Professor Anthony J. Turner (Leeds) and Dr Frederic Checler (Nice), like the 1st such conference held in 2012, will focus on recent advances in neurodegenerative diseases, ranging from basic science to clinical and pharmaceutical developments, and will highlight current understanding of underlying mechanisms, new research directions, and novel therapeutic strategies. The conference will span Alzheimer’s and other dementias, prion diseases, Parkinson’s disease and other movement disorders, particularly focusing on interactions and common mechanisms among neurodegenerative diseases. New concepts in any aspect of neurodegeneration/regeneration are, however, welcomed and the active participation of young investigators is highly encouraged.
