Neurodegeneration Early Career Researcher Meeting 2022

Join Proteintech as we host our third iteration of the Neurodegeneration ECR meeting

Starting in 2020, we wanted to bring young scientists together from all over the world and give them a platform to present their work to an international audience. International travel may be back, but online symposia remain an excellent tool to share data and ideas to aid collaborations and enhance careers.

Our keynote speaker, Dr. Amanda Gleixner, Assistant Professor at The University of Pittsburgh, will be presenting her recently published data exploring TDP-43 proteinopathy in ALS/FTLD. Following this, there will be 5 short talks presented by ECRs from across the globe, discussing their recent advances in neurodegenerative research.
