Symposium on Systems Biology of Neurodegenerative Diseases - Nov 6 - Cambridge

Venue: European Bioinformatics Institute, CB10 1SD, United Kingdom

Date: Friday, November 6, 2015

Camille Laibe , EMBL-EBI, UK
Laura Emery , EMBL-EBI, UK

Admin support: 
Frank O'Donnell , EMBL-EBI, UK

Registration Opens Date: Friday, August 14, 2015

Participation: First come, first served




In this workshop, there will be talks and discussions on the state of the art research being carried out to unravel the biochemical pathways underlying the synaptic disorders associated with neurodegenerative diseases and in particular Alzheimer's disease as part of the AgedBrainSYSBIO project. There will also be the opportunity to learn more and discuss new technologies and tools being developed and used for gaining a better understanding of this disease and ageing in general.


The workshop is aimed at researchers from diverse audiences who are interested in finding out about Alzheimer's disease research and the methods and tools which are helping it. This may include but is not restricted to consortium members, academics and biotech SMEs from Europe, with various backgrounds, such as systems biology, bioinformatics, computational biology, medicine or biochemistry.
