Overlapping Pathologies and Common Mechanisms

The Department of Neurochemistry is proud to announce that we will be hosting the 5th International Conference on Molecular Neurodegeneration (ICMN2018): Overlapping Pathologies and Common Mechanisms.

Following previous conferences in Seoul (Korea) 2016 and Cannes (France) 2013, ICMN2018 will take place in Aula Magna at Stockholm university June 11-13, 2018.

The conference is organized by Molecular Neurodegeneration, the leading peer-reviewed open access journal in the neuroscience category and the official journal of the BrightFocus Foundation.

Topics to be covered at ICMN2018

  • Aging and neurodegeneration
  • Pathways and Target Discovery in Neurodegeneration
  • Genetics
  • Mechanisms of neurodegeneration
  • Innate Immunity and Neurodegeneration
  • Neuropathology and biomarkers
  • Clinical Studies and Therapy
