The Neuro4D is an international conference on Neuro Degenerative Disease Drug Discovery bringing together drug discovery companies, service and technology providers and academic innovators in the field of proteopathic neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s dementia and Parkinson’s disease, etc.
This second event will have a spotlight on Parkinson’s disease, where much progress in understanding disease onset, disease progression in the brain and the underlying and accompanying molecular changes, has been made. AD and other indications involving prion-like disease induction and progression will be covered as well. Misfolded and toxic protein aggregates replicating by templating correctly folded monomer proteins, are the common denominator of all these diseases, a view supported by the majority of international experts now. Presentations will cover elucidating the molecular events that result in synaptic loss and neuronal death, as well as neuro-inflammation, which is another common hallmark of neurodegeneration.
The conference differentiates itself by bringing together distinguished industry and academic speakers to update attendees about the state of the art in neurodegenerative disease drug discovery. Biotech and international pharmaceutical drug discovery companies will present their most recent achievements to develop new treatment options and outline the models and technologies used in compound selection and optimization. Service and technology companies will present their platforms and show examples of how their services contribute to the discovery of new drug candidates.
The 2018 event was held in a spirit of open and open-minded discussion and friendly interaction. This was enabled by its limited size, strong common interests, joint expertise and striving for the best organizational quality. One to one meetings at the posters, on the adjacent terrace or park, or in comfortable semi-private seating areas, facilitated personal exchanges.
Based on feedback from the 2018 event, we have created an improved time schedule for 2019 that allows flexible discussions after each presentation and at the end of each session, furthering the collaborative spirit enjoyed in 2018 and keeping a clear and reliable time-schedule.
The 2019 Neuro4D conference will be held again at a high quality hotel, with booked rooms for delegates, including all food and drinks during the entire event, joint social activities and conference dinner with award-winning cuisine at the end of the first day, all included in the conference price.
Call for Abstracts:
Abstracts (max. 300 words) are requested before November 30th 2018. They will be evaluated and selected for oral or poster presentation by December 15th. Accepted abstracts of participating delegates will be published in the program.
Presentations are 10 min, with approximately 5 min for questions. In addition, a discussion with all speakers will take place at the end of each session.
Poster boards have a width of 1.20 m and a height of 1.50 m (with an overall total height of 1.85 m). Posters must have a portrait orientation and be a maximum size of A0 (84 × 119 cm). Poster presenters need to be at their posters during dedicated sessions.
