Molecular Mechanisms of Neurodegeneration
Organizer(s): Harry T. Orr, Stephen T. Warren and Huda Y. Zoghbi
Date: January 16 - 21, 2007
Location: Sagebrush Inn & Suites, Taos, NM, USA
Supported by the Director's Fund
Summary of Meeting:
Evidence is accumulating that in chronic neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer’s disease (AD), Parkinson’s disease (PD), Huntington’s disease (HD), and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), are due to a combination of events triggered by expression and accumulation of misfolded proteins that impair neuronal function. More recent developments have shown that, in certain diseases, a mutant RNA triggers the formation of nuclear inclusions and pathogenesis. In this meeting, emphasis will placed on understanding cellular pathways that are implicated in some of the more common and intriguing neurodegenerative disorders, with the aim of providing a foundation for their treatment.
