Event description

Description

Traditionally, our understanding of neurological disease has been centered on neurons themselves. However, in the last decade, it has become clear that glial dysfunction, and more broadly neuroinflammation, is implicated in many of these pathological states. This is true in many neurodegenerative and neurodevelopmental disorders including multiple sclerosis, austism spectrum disorders, and many rare disorders.

HBI, TNC, and HSCI and moderator Allie Muthukumar (Stevens Lab) invite Boston-area researchers and innovators for a dialogue with:

Staci Bilbo, PhD
Associate Professor,
Harvard Medical School
Director of Research,
Lurie Center for Autism

Rita Balice-Gordon, PhD
Global Head,
Rare and Neurologic Diseases,
Sanofi

about the relevant targets and methods (small molecules, antibodies, gene therapy) for addressing neuroinflammation and how we can hope to combat these disorders. This event is part of series of conversations between academics and industry leaders to discuss new technologies and best practices in neuroscience research.
