Duke Trainees Organize Symposium on Neurodegenerative Disorder Biomarkers

A trio of Duke trainees have banded together to form a group to connect scientists and clinicians in the Triangle interested in studying and solving neurodegenerative diseases. As part of their efforts, the group is putting on a symposium on Neurodegenerative Disease Biomarkers on March 17th, 2022 from 9 am - 12 pm. More information about the event can be found here (including the registration link), and below:

From the organizers: "This event aims to connect researchers and clinicians together around the common goal of advancing our understanding of an individualized approach to combating neurodegenerative diseases. We believe that neurodegenerative disorders should no longer be viewed as monoliths, but as an opportunity to practice personalized research and medicine driven by molecularly defined patient sub-groups. We will host Dr. Alberto Espay from the Cincinnati Cohort Biomarker Program, a leader in Parkinson’s disease biomarker discovery, and a panel of movement disorder specialists from the Triangle to dive into the latest science around biomarker discovery and network together toward creative solutions for collaboration."

 More information about the Duke-CZI Neurodegeneration Challenge Network can be found on their website.
