Webinar: The Neuropathology of ALS: What can we learn? | 14 November, 2019 @ 7-8am NZDT
Research experiments in ALS and other neurodegenerative diseases are highly dependent on the study of human nervous system tissues. Brain, spinal cord and other tissues are used for diagnosis as well as for discovery of disease mechanisms that can lead to disease modeling and therapy development. In this webinar, Dr. Glass will discuss the basics of neuropathology as it relates to ALS, including demonstrations of pathological features that have led to major investigations focused on understanding the underpinnings of ALS and the search for a cure.

Pan-Asian Consortium for Treatment and Research in ALS | 25-26 September, 2020 | Nagoya, Japan
The Pan-Asian Consortium for Treatment and Research in ALS (PACTALS) was established in December 2014. They have been continuously developing and expanding its Asia-Pacific network of researchers and clinicians working with ALS/MND ever since.
Their Aims are:
1) To establish a network among clinicians, researchers, medical staff and patient associations involved in ALS/MND throughout the Asia-Oceania area.
2) To share the recent advances in clinical and basic researches in ALS/MND and exchange opinions to develop effective therapeutics and cares for ALS/MND.
The main theme for PACTALS 2020 Nagoya is “Towards therapeutic development of ALS- Asian – Oceanian perspective.” More details for this conference will be available online soon.
