Neurodegenerative Diseases : Biology & Therapeutics 2018

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.

We don’t accept Online Abstracts
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.

FINANCIAL AID & AWARDS
Certain Cold Spring Harbor meetings have special awards to support the participation of graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and/or scientists at all career levels from racial/ethnic populations that are underrepresented in the sciences. Check individual meeting web pages for details on how to apply for these awards. Federal support may be restricted to U.S. citizens, permanent residents or individuals working in U.S. labs.
In general, requests for financial aid should be made by email to the individual administrator listed on the meeting web page. Aid is awarded on the basis of funding available at the meeting, the active participation of the person requesting support (i.e., submission of an abstract), stated need, nationality/country of origin, and geographical distance from Cold Spring Harbor. Financial aid is generally awarded to offset the registration, room & board costs to attend a meeting. Travel support is rarely included unless it is a specific condition of a special award.
