A lecture taking place at the Crick.

Medicine at the Crick Neurodegeneration: now clinically tractable?

Neurodegenerative diseases, caused by the inexorable loss of neurons in the human nervous system, are currently incurable and devastating (e.g. Alzheimer’s Disease, Parkinson’s Disease and Motor Neuron Disease (ALS)).

Emerging concepts in aging, mitochondrial biology, proteostasis, and RNA regulation hold the promise of pathogenic mechanisms that are therapeutically targetable.

This meeting highlights the latest developments in these fields, and addresses whether they can be effectively harnessed for future therapies.
