Advanced Course on Neuroinflammation and Neurodegeneration

Venue: Venice, Italy


Event Notes:

The Neuroscience School of Advanced Studies and the UK DRI proudly announce the Advanced Course on Neuroinflammation and Neurodegeneration.

An excellent line-up of lecturers will bring leading expertise and insight into neuroimmune mechanisms in neurodegeneration. The course Director is Dr Soyon Hong (UK DRI at UCL), and the confirmed Faculty includes Bart De Strooper (UK DRI at UCL), Florent Ginhoux (Gustave Roussy Hospital), Henne Holstege (Amsterdam UMC), Baljit Khakh (UCLA), Maria Lehtinen (Boston Children’s Hospital), Joseph Lewcock (Denali Therapeutics) and Patrik Versteken (VIK & KU Leuven).

The course will delve into 1. Defining cell type-specific vulnerability, 2. Neuroglial crosstalk at the synapse in health and pathology, 3. Immune-immune crosstalk at brain borders including the blood-CSF barrier and perivascular space, and 4. Challenges and strategies to target neuroimmune processes in humans. This course will, in particular, focus on Alzheimer’s disease-related pathogenesis.

Applications are open to researchers from all career stages.

Admissions are on a rolling basis, with weekly evaluation of applications until all places are taken (maximum 50 participants).
