International Symposium on New Therapeutic Avenues in Parkinson’s Disease and Related Disorders, Bordeaux, France Organizers : Meissner, Tison and Bezard (registration, deadline April ,28th )

Abstract :

The overarching goal of the Symposia of the Bordeaux Neurosciences Institute is to bring locally a selected set of top researchers on a scientific topic that is of broad interest to the community. There will be 2-3 symposia per year, with each symposium lasting 1 or 2 days. Symposia are open to everyone from Bordeaux and outside, and are free."


The objective of this meeting is to brainstorm and dialogue between international Parkinson’s disease experts and representatives of leading healthcare companies and innovative biotech startups, to better understand the evolution of the therapeutic area (met versus unmet needs, clinical trial design, derisking translational development, emerging treatment challenges) and its strategic implications for the Healthcare industry.
The topics cover the most striking unmet treatment needs of our patients with the ambition to provide a cure for Parkinson’s disease in the future. Each expert will give an interactive presentation where he will briefly review his topic, define meaningful surrogate markers for the design of future clinical trials and identify the most promising and innovative treatment avenues

 Inscription fees vary from 0 to 150 euros according to your affiliation.
