This multidisciplinary scientific conference aims to illuminate the linkages among the fields of protein folding/misfolding with the prion and allied sciences. Prion diseases possess major global food, health safety and socioeconomic implications. Recent findings demonstrate â€œprion-likeâ€ mechanisms of disease progression in other neurodegenerative disorders such as Alzheimerâ€™s, Parkinsonâ€™s, and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), which represent major healthcare burdens. This conference aims to integrate these diverse, and somewhat disparate, research areas to explore common links, share ideas, and develop solutions.
This open scientific conference will welcome over 300 national and international attendees and over 100 poster presentations. The three day program includes multidisciplinary presentations, networking activities, exhibits, and poster sessions. A total of 40 presentations are scheduled, including numerous renowned guest speakers and a series of poster promoted talks.
