Event description

Description

The inaugural Monash Dementia & Neurodegeneration Research Symposium: Cells and Systems to Clinic and Community

This exciting full-day event will bring together researchers and clinicians from across Monash University to highlight research being undertaken within the broad fields of dementia and neurodegeneration, including pre-clinical, clinical and community care stages.

The symposium will raise awareness of the University’s research strengths, and provide a fantastic opportunity to share ideas for the future of research within these fields, including more consolidated approaches to discovery and treatment.

We are now accepting ECR/student abstracts (for ‘fast talk’ 8 min presentations and posters). Abstract submission form and instructions can be found here. (or cut & paste this into your browser search bar: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/a1kov0i5onpijbm/AACmCFhRnovaVonWvYZ6jLVBa?dl=0)
