Returning to Boston in February 2020 is the 8th Neurodegenerative Drug Development Summit, previously World CNS. Despite the lack of clinical trial success, new investments are being made in forward-thinking biotechs, digital and blood-based biomarker technologies are advancing, new targets are emerging, and gene therapy is taking the limelight. The Neurodegenerative Drug Development Summit will unite industry stakeholders to learn how to overcome their translational challenges, share their progress and network for future collaborations to accelerate the development of successful neurodegenerative therapeutics. Don’t miss your opportunity to join over 150 fellow CNS experts from Biogen, AbbVie, Sanofi and more, and immerse yourself in the neurodegenerative community to help refresh the neurodegenerative approach and challenge traditional thinking to advance clinical progress.
