Symposium: Small Vessel Disease of the Brain - the Epidemic of the 21st Century?

This symposium is organised by Maiken Nedergaard, Professor at the University of Copenhagen.

The symposium will bring together leading international experts to discuss the complex biological and metabolic mechanisms that lead to fluid accumulation, inflammation, and neuronal loss observed in clinically active small vessel disease (SVD). The purpose of the symposium is to leverage the rapid technical development in neuroimaging and novel pre-clinical experimental work to generate new insight into SVD disease mechanisms, prevention, and treatment.
