It is estimated that over 5 million people live with Alzheimer's disease (AD) in the USA, and it is predicted that by the year there will be an average 50% increase in patients with AD ().AD is a leading cause of dementia in the aging population ().Patients with AD experience symptoms including cognitive alterations, memory loss and behavioral changes (3,4).Cited by: The 6th International Conference on Molecular Neurodegeneration (ICMN) to be held Mayin Bangkok, Thailand, will offer a series of invited talks by well-renowned speakers to discuss Glial and Vascular Contributions to Neurodegenerative Diseases.

The field of neurodegeneration research has been advancing rapidly over the past few years, and has provided intriguing new insights into the normal physiological functions and pathogenic roles of a wide range of molecules associated with several devastating neurodegenerative disorders, including Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, frontotemporal.

Neurodegeneration is the progressive loss of structure or function of neurons, including death of neurodegenerative diseases – including amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's disease, fatal familial insomnia, and Huntington's disease – occur as a result of neurodegenerative processes.

Such diseases are incurable, resulting in progressive degeneration Specialty: Neurology, Psychiatry.

The lab uses state-ofthe- art single molecule live imaging techniques on neuronal cultures, as well as biochemistry, cell biology and biophysics approaches on mouse model systems to study the role of axonal transport in neurodegenerative diseases, with an initial focus on ALS.

Molecular Mechanisms of Neurodegeneration We use forward genetics to identify the molecular pathways associated with loss of neurons in the aging mammalian brain. Specifically, we study chemically induced and spontaneous mouse mutants with adult-onset neurodegeneration leading to progressive movement abnormalities associated with cerebellar ataxia.
