Event Overview
Welcome message:

You are cordially invited to participate in the tenth meeting on Neurodegenerative Diseases to be held at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory. The meeting will begin with dinner and the first session on the evening of Wednesday, November 28, 2018, and will conclude with lunch on Saturday, December 1.

A primary goal of the meeting is to provide a forum where medical scientists from academia can interact with scientists from the biopharmaceutical industry, thus forging a community of academic and industry researchers who recognize that they have much to learn from each other. Rational drug discovery for neurodegenerative diseases has begun to yield compounds and treatments that are now entering clinical settings. For human studies utilizing these compounds and treatments to be maximally informative, it is crucial that scientists from academia and industry meet regularly to exchange data and ideas.

This meeting will consist of six to seven oral sessions plus one poster session. The aim is to populate half of each oral session with speakers from academia and the other half from industry; speakers will be invited as well as selected from submitted abstracts.

Tentative Topics:

Propagation of Neurodegenerative Disease

Network Mechanisms of Neurodegenerative Disease

Neuroinflammation & Glial Biology of Neurodegeneration

ApoE and Lipid Metabolism

RNA Metabolism in Neurodegenerative Disease

The Endolysosome, Autophagy and Other Targets in Therapeutics


Richard Ransohoff, Third Rock Ventures

Scott Small, Columbia University

John Trojanowski, University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine

Submission Info

You must register for the meeting in order to submit abstracts. 

After registering you will be sent a web link for abstract submission by email.

You may copy and paste your abstract from Word, Google Docs, or Notepad; abstracts are limited to ~2900 characters.

Program information: An electronic version of the program abstract book will be sent three working days prior to the first day of the meeting, and hard copies will be available for collection upon your arrival at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory. First night and keynote speakers are informed of their session date and time, otherwise program information is only available upon release of the electronic version of the abstract book. The reason we do this is to try and maximize interactions by encouraging participants to stay for the duration of the meeting.

Please check your email for talk length, poster instructions, and how to have your poster printed at CSHL for collection upon arrival.
