Conference Image V2

The Symposium on “Advanced therapies in Neurodegeneration: Bridging Neuroscience, Bioengineering and Optogenetics” invites scientists for two days to the beautiful city of Lisbon to discuss advances in the field of neurodegenerative diseases with a special focus on regenerative medicine, cell therapy, optogenetics and bioengineering. This conference is organized by the Marie-Curie Horizon 2020 “Training for Cell-based Regenerative Medicine (Training4CRM)” Innovative Training Network, which brings together 9 institutions all over Europe, 25 PIs and 15 early stage researchers to find innovative approaches to treat diseases such as Parkinson’s Disease, Huntington’s Disease or Epilepsy.


The programme of the symposium will include talks about tissue engineering and regenerative medicine tools, cell replacement, biomedical engineering and micro- and nano-fabrication, as well as a poster session. Also, networking and social activities are planned to establish and strengthen interdisciplinary collaboration.
