Back to Basics II – Inflammation in neurodegenerative disease
The Back to Basics Workshops provide a forum for new ideas on the molecular and cellular mechanisms underlying neurodegeneration. Their intention is to provide postgraduate students and ECRs with exposure to a broad range of thinking and research, and to give them opportunities to present their own work.
Back to Basics I was held as a satellite workshop to the AAIC Satellite Symposium in Sydney in September 2019. Back to Basics II will be a satellite workshop to the Australian Dementia Forum 2020 in Adelaide.
Shane Liddelow (NYU Langone, USA) and Katja Kanninen (University of Eastern Finland) are invited speakers and are keen to network with postgraduate students and ECRs.
