Neurodegenerative Diseases, such as Alzheimer’s Disease, Parkinson’s Disease and Huntington’s Disease, are becoming increasingly common in our ageing population. Young and early-career researchers all over the country are dedicating their work to understanding and combating these devastating diseases .Integrating our knowledge from every approach is the next step towards fully understanding and treating these diseases.

The focus of this unique symposium is to integrate ALL approaches to researching neurodegenerative diseases, with an overall aim to informing the development of therapeutics. All PhD students and early-career Post-Docs from every school working on neurodegenerative disease are welcome to attend.
