The International Conference “Alpha-Synuclein in Parkinson’s Diseases and Related Neurodegenerative Diseases: From Mechanisms to Therapeutic Strategies” is being hosted in Dubai, United Arab Emirates from March 01–03, 2013. As an invited speaker, Dr. Matthew Farrer will be presenting a talk titled: “New late-onset Autosomal Dominant Genes (EIF4GI & VPS35) – What do they tell us and how do they fit in with AS and LRRK2?”
The aim of the Conference is to bring together neuroscientists from all over the world to discuss the advances of alpha-synuclein in health and diseases. The focus will be on debating current issues and challenges in structures and mechanisms involved in diseases, new strategies for early disease detection (Biomarkers) to allow future neuroprotective and restorative treatment, and new therapeutic strategies for Parkinson disease, dementia and multiple system atrophy.
