Dear Colleague,

It is our pleasure to announce the 8th Neurodegenerative Conditions Research & Development Conference, to be held September 18-19, 2014 in San Francisco, CA to discuss the latest scientific discovery in the neuroscience field.

The drug discovery effort for neurodegenerative diseases has been one of the major challenges of the pharmaceutical industry. This conference will connect scientists and researchers to share perspectives on the latest topics of interest, such as rare CNS disorders, translational biomarkers, wearable devices and other technologies, and more.

We invite you to join us to discuss much more than just research itself, but the partnerships and alliances that are being and need to be formed in order to continue pushing research forward into the future. What are the best models of private/public partnerships? How are patient advocacy groups changing the way we think about funding and research? How will we work with government groups? This meeting seeks to provide a forum to dialogue about such questions and begin formulating answers at this critical time in the field.

Sessions for the program include:

  1. Novel Therapeutic Targets and Approaches in Alzheimer's Disease

  2. Biomarkers: Translation from Discovery to Clinical

  3. Joint Session with CNS Partnering & Deal-Making Conference: Hot Topics and Trends in Neuroscience

  4. New Approaches & Treatments in Neurodegenerative and Neuropsychiatric Conditions

  5. Drug Mechanisms and Treatments in Parkinson’s Disease

We hope you’ll join us in San Francisco to meet and discuss the future of neuroscience research and development!

Best regards,

The 2014 Scientific Advisory Board
