HOPE 2020: Submission and registration are open !

The second edition of the "pHysiopathology of Parkinson's DisEase" (HOPE) conference will be held from 29 to 31 January 2020 at ICM in Paris.

Following the success of the first edition and the very stimulating feedback from participants regarding the latest scientific advances and the integration of basic research into clinical research, we are pleased to invite you to take part in this second edition.

The topics will cover the epigenetic and genetic determinants of Parkinson's disease, their molecular mechanisms and their modelling, in order to better understand the pathophysiology of Parkinson's disease and open pre-clinical, clinical and imaging perspectives.

In addition we propose a workshop the first day on two topics that will be discussed later on during the congress

1) Cellular modelling using microfluidic and stem cell technologies

2) Available imaging tools for cellular models and to humans


Submission and registrations are available on the conference website:

Submission deadline: December 1st, 2019

Registration deadline: January 12, 2020

Webinar series on Quality and Reproducibility issues

EATRIS is running a series of webinars in the fall of this year, looking at reproducibility issues experienced during specific phases of the drug development pipeline (screening, preclinical models, biomarker development & analytical platforms, clinical validation). These webinars are developed in close collaboration with other Research Infrastructures (EU-OPENSCREEN, INFRAFRONTIER, BBMRI, ECRIN) and initiatives such as Translation Together.

The webinars will be brought to you by experts in the field and include an audience Q&A session during which attendees can ask questions at the end of the lecture. All webinars will be recorded and available for later viewing.
