Neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer`s and Parkinson`s disease and conditions such as stroke disrupt the quality of life for patients, extracts an enormous emotional and physical strain on caregivers, and cost society billions of dollars annually. Increasing numbers of elderly people in the population has resulted in a sharp increase in the prevalence of these neurological conditions. Underlying a majority of these disorders is the abnormal degeneration of neurons. In most instances, the etiological causes are unknown and they have a progressive development. While symptomatic treatments are available for many neurodegenerative disorders, drugs to reduce or prevent the neuronal loss in patients have yet to be identified. Intense research over the past few years has generated a rich and complex body of information about the mechanisms and pathophysiology of neurodegenerative conditions. This knowledge has provided the opportunity to find novel targets for drug development and resulting in the initiation of several promising clinical trials.

The conference focuses on the latest and most exciting research findings in the identification of novel molecular targets and the development of potential therapeutic strategies for neurodegenerative conditions. In the 1st and 2nd annual conferences, we have had excellent list of speakers from academia, industry and government whose presentations covered a range of topics within the area of neurodegeneration and therapy and with information from cell culture models to clinical trials.

The 3rd annual conference will take place on Thursday, Sept 20 and Friday, Sept 21 in San Francisco, California. Please bring this conference to the attention of your colleagues who may benefit from attending the meeting. Please register early and submit an abstract.

It is our pleasure to welcome you to the 3rd annual conference on Therapeutic Strategies against Neurodegenerative Conditions in San Francisco.
