Summary

The Latsis symposium brings together leaders in diverse fields of neurodegenerative and neurological disorders to share and discuss the latest discoveries on the relationship of neuronal assemblies to disease progression and propagation, with the hope to spur new therapeutic approaches.

Content

Degeneration of Neuronal Circuits: In three sessions, the speakers will explore the interconnectedness of neurons within circuits and how this intricate interplay may be critical for selective vulnerability to neurodegenerative disease. The meeting will expose commonalities of circuit dysfunction across neurodegenerative disorders that could spur new therapeutic approaches. Neurodegenerative diseases covered include Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, Huntington's disease, prion-related diseases and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis.

 

Speakers include:

 

Adriano Aguzzi, University Hospital Zürich, Switzerland

Anne Bertolotti, University College London, UK

David Borchelt, University of Florida, USA

Patrick Brundin, Van Andel Research Institute Michigan, USA

William Bauer, University of Michigan, USA

Marc Diamond, UT Southwestern Medical Center, USA

Jochen Herms, Ludwig-Maximilians University Munich, Germany

Abid Hussaini, Columbia University, USA

Hilal Lashual, EPFL, Switzerland

Jia-Yi Li, Lund University, Sweden

Sabine Liebscher, Ludwig-Maximilians University Munich, Germany

Magda Polymenidou, University of Zürich, Switzerland
