Developing Biotherapeutics for Neurological Disorders

10 December 2018 09:30-17:20, London, United Kingdom

Brain disorders such as: Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, epilepsy, cerebral vascular disease, including stroke, multiple sclerosis, brain trauma and migaine and their sequelae affect ~1bnpeople worldwide. The economic burden on health providers and governments is tremendous and worryingly this situation will escalate as the exected human life span increases. Throughout the world their are many interdisciplinary teams developing new therapeutic agents. Key research initiatives include: genomics, proteomics, cell imaging technologies,stem cell bioengineering, medicinal chemistry, molecular diagnostics, nanobiotechnology for drug delivery and biotherapeutics. Many significant advances have been made but still there remains a huge unmet clinical need for disease-modifying agents that will amelioare these distressing disorders.This conference will provide an unique opportunity for specialists to interact and create new collaborations. An important component of the conference is that it will provide good networking opportunities for students, to meet and question the experts and offers the chance to present a poster.
