2011 Neurobiology of Disease in Children Symposium: Childhood Ataxia, Tuesday, October 25, 2011
Location: Savannah, GA
Description: The overall aims of this NDC symposia are to (1) review scientific advances and determine their relevance to current and future clinical practice in child neurology; (2) coordinate efforts among various clinical and basic science disciplines, lay organizations, and the NIH to review current research initiatives and define future directions; and (3) disseminate symposia proceedings to ensure that clinical and basic science disciplines are informed about scientific advances, current research initiatives, and future directions. NDC symposia have brought together clinicians, scientists, caregivers, and NIH program officers to determine how research findings can be translated to enhance clinical understanding and affect clinical practice.
