We are pleased to announce that the conference on rare neurotransmitter diseases will take place on 29th September – 01st October 2022, in Hotel M, Belgrade, Serbia. The conference will be organized in presence mode, but most sessions will be offered digitally so you will be able to join online in case you are not able to travel.
Neurotransmitter diseases are a group of rare genetic diseases with neurometabolic implications and a wide spectrum of clinical presentations. The term “neurotransmitters” subsumes different types of chemical messengers enabling brain function through neuronal communication. In 2013, the “International Working Group on Neurotransmitter Related Disorders (iNTD)” was established to coordinate scientific and clinical efforts since each single expert centre involves a limited number of patients.
The general aim of the present Networking event is, for the first time, to bring together clinical scientists, basic researchers and patient advocacy groups to enable an interdisciplinary exchange, thus, to promote health for patients affected with rare neurotransmitter related disorders. The network strengthening will be carried out thanks to mixed sessions, involving all partners, discussing together on the scientific advancements of research and diagnostic tools as well as on novel cell models that pave the way to new disease treatments and medical protocols.
The outputs will provide research advancements, iNTD network expansion to further medical centres and patients, and bring knowledge for all participants, due to the unprecedented opportunity to exchange scientific and clinical expertise conjugated to patient experience. In addition, the network event will reduce variation between (underrepresented) countries, support Early Career Researchers and empower patients, wherever they live, to access the necessary expertise and services in a more global and shared perspective.
We are happy to invite you to enhance this conference by your participation!
