Almost 150 delegates from across the globe gathered in Jersey City, USA, at the end of October for the annual international research symposium organised by our colleagues at American charity CurePSP.
Described by CurePSP as “surpassing all expectations”, the event featured speakers carefully selected for their outstanding work in the field of neurodegenerative disease research. With last year’s attendance doubled, it’s clear that there is a growing impetus within the international research community to work together to put an end to PSP, CBD and related conditions. Here at the PSPA, we are keen to work alongside CurePSP and other international partners to build on this in the future.
Dr Alex Klein, Cure PSP’s Vice President – Scientific Affairs, said:
“This symposium has brought together the best minds in neurodegenerative science from quite a few countries. This interest in the field has a huge momentum behind it and I can see the event being even bigger next year, bringing the key players in neurodegeneration research together to find a cure for these devastating diseases.”
