Attention Researchers! NINDS to Hold a Parkinson's Planning Conference Jan. 6-7

The National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) is organizing the “Parkinson’s Disease 2014: Advancing Research, Improving Lives” conference on January 6-7, 2014 at the Natcher Conference Center on the National Institutes of Health (NIH) main campus.

The conference is designed to inform ongoing and future efforts in Parkinson’s research, particularly assessing “significant challenges” and identifying “the highest priorities for advancing basic, translational, and clinical research” on Parkinson’s.

While the public meeting is open to neuroscientists, physicians, and other public and private stakeholders, it is especially important that researchers are also engaged and attend the event. The planning conversations will likely have an impact on not only how NIH and NINDS approach future funding requests, but also the general direction of the field.

Registration is now open – learn more about the NINDS Parkinson's planning conference and see an updated agenda.

Webcast Option Available
The two-day conference will also be webcast live, and an archived video will be available after the meeting.  Please visit the conference logistics page for more information.
