March 10-12, 2021- online event
Neuroacanthocytosis syndromes (NA) are a group of rare, but devastating, neurodegenerative disorders, with Chorea Acanthocytosis as the “core” disease of this family. To date there are no treatments that can halt or slowdown the progression of these diseases. Since these are ultra-rare disease, there is very little or no support of industry and other public and private agencies is rare. Therefore, it is very important for these patients to have a strong NA community bringing together basic and Networking Support Scheme clinical neuroscientists, neurologists and patients worldwide to address new discoveries in these diseases. This international community was successfully established 20 years ago. Thus, the aim of the 10th International Meeting on Neuroacanthocytosis Syndromes is to continue with this scientific / social platform that has been very useful to lead scientific approaches and the guidelines of patients’ healthcare for almost two decades.
The setting of the meeting will encourage interactions, exchange of ideas and networking opportunities among all participants. PhD students and young researches will have the opportunity to present and discuss their work during the meeting.
It is very relevant that patients, caregivers and patient’s associations are present in this meeting together with scientists and physicians. Thus, the meeting program schedules mixed sessions where the next steps and action points (scientific /social) are discussed to establish synergies in our quest to advance knowledge and practice. We must work all together to give some hope to the patients and their families.
This event is receiving funding from the EJP RD Networking Support Sheme. The Principal applicant is Prof. J. Alberch, University of Barcelona, Spain.
