Biomarkers for Neurodegenerative Diseases
MAY 24 - 28, 2021
We are excited to announce the third edition at University of Gothenburg (UGOT), again in collaboration with the UCL Dementia Research Centre. Aimed at PhD level and beyond, this detailed and comprehensive five-day course will feature many leading names in biomarker research (see below). We look forward to welcoming delegates from around the world for this unique educational and networking opportunity.
The first two “Biomarkers for neurodegenerative diseases” courses took place April 2018 at the University of Gothenburg (UGOT) and April 2019 at University College London (UCL).
Biomarkers are increasingly required for effective research into neurodegenerative diseases. They are critical for diagnosis, disease monitoring and will be key for measuring target engagement of disease modifying therapies.
PhD students working in the field of neurodegeneration require a working knowledge of a range of biomarkers to correctly interpret scientific literature and to design and conduct successful and ambitious research studies.
The University of Gothenburg and University College London are leading international centres with complementary expertise in fluid and imaging biomarkers. This collaboration would be expected to strengthen the quality of biomarker training across both institutions and beyond, as well as fostering new research collaborations and providing delegates with outstanding networking opportunities.
