Forum Discussions

These novel Fora, in WEF-style format, will bring together corporate participants, neuroscientists and clinicians with outstanding experience in “hottest” research topics in the field of neurodegeneration to discuss the impact of newest preclinical results and cutting edge clinical findings on understanding and treatment development of neurodegenerative disorders. The objective is to exchange novel insights, challenges and solutions on the joint path forward to defining the future of Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s therapeutics.

Each forum will be a moderated discussion with maximum 3 minutes introduction statement from each participant followed by questions from the audience. The forum is also open for journalists from different media, including lay press in and may report on progress made by the leaders in this field.
