NCATS Co-Sponsored Conferences

  • Brain, Blood and Iron: Joint International Symposium on Neuroacanthocytosis and Neurodegeneration with Brain Iron Accumulation, Friday, October 01, 2010 - Saturday, October 02, 2010
    Location: Doubletree Hotel,, Bethesda, Maryland
    Description: The overall objectives of this workshop were to (1) define neuroacanthocytosis (NA) and neurodegeneration with brain iron accumulation (NBIA) research priorities; (2) determine resources that are needed in order to foster research; (3) stimulate interest in research into NA and NBIA among scientists in related fields; (4) generate collaborations between those working in related disciplines, with particular relevance to NA and NBIA; and (5) attract early career investigators to these fields.

  • Third Genome Dynamics in the Neurosciences Conference, Sunday, July 18, 2010 - Thursday, July 22, 2010
    Location: The Hilton Metropole, Brighton, England
    Description: The goal of this meeting was to integrate basic processes of DNA damage signaling and repair and clinical aspects of neurological and neurodegenerative disease. The program was designed to bring together leading scientists with primary interests in DNA damage signaling with those working in specific related neurodegenerative disease areas as a means for integrating these fields. It was anticipated that this would generate insights into how normal processes of genome maintenance in the brain contribute to the prevention of a wide range of diseases.
