The course is targeted to clinicians, pathologists, Ph.D.s and specialists in training. It is focused on some of the main neurodegenerative diseases: Prion Diseases, Alzheimer, Parkinson and Lateral Amyotrophic Sclerosis.
In each session the topics will cover NeuroPathology, Molecular Pathology, Genetics and Clinical aspects of each disorder or group of disorders.
The last session of March 31 (Wednesday morning) will be dedicated to the discussion of research project presented by participants.
