Overlapping Pathologies and Common Mechanisms

The Department of Neurochemistry has recently merged with the Department of Biochemistry and Biophysics and we are all proud to announce that we are 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 Stockholm (Sweden) 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
