The spinocerebellar ataxias (SCAs) are a group of autosomal dominantly inherited progressive ataxia disorders. SCA Global is a worldwide initiative for clinical research in SCAs and provides a flexible and open research platform to pursue the following goals: 1. To better understand the manifestation, evolution and impact of the various SCAs, 2. To develop and validate biomarkers which can be used in future interventional trials, 3. To facilitate access to people with SCAs who are willing to participate in clinical trials.
The AAT-AD/PD™ Focus Meeting 2020 will present all the latest breakthroughs in treatment, translational R&D, early diagnosis, drug development and clinical trials in Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and other related neurological disorders.
A central theme will be to further advance innovative strategies in therapy and prevention, clinical trials and diagnostic markers discussed in the sessions and corridors at AD/PD™ 2019, in order to focus on driving successful collaborations among academia and industry, leading to the development of innovative therapies and ultimately providing for a better future for patients and families affected by neurodegenerative diseases.
The 1st conference of the ARCA Global network aims to advance a global consortium for translational studies in autosomal-recessive ataxias (ARCAs), ARCA Global. ARCA Global is a dynamic, collaborative translational research initiative ultimately aiming to prepare and conduct harmonized multi-center treatment trials in genetically stratified ARCAs, thus allowing to translate the recent progress in ARCA genetics directly into stringent targeted treatment trials. It will integrate all main stakeholder groups including basic and clinician scientists, industry, and patient organizations.
Over the course of four stimulating days of in-depth discussions in 20 different conferences, the programming focuses on advances and innovative solutions in all aspects of clinical trial planning, management and operations, including: Site Selection and Management, Patient Engagement, Recruitment and Retention, Protocol Optimization, Feasibility, Data Strategy and Analytics, Sensors and Wearables, Artificial Intelligence, Clinical Biomarker Strategy, Precision Medicine, Clinical Biomarkers, and an all new track on Medical Device Clinical Trial Operations and Regulations.
HAI 2020 will continue to emphasize ample lively discussion of core controversies such as: what does the presence of brain amyloid mean, how should it be measured, how does it change, and what does it portend? Our discussions primarily spring from brief presentations by active investigators who will report on unpublished, cutting-edge research in human imaging of amyloid-beta and/or other biomarkers that pertain to Alzheimer’s-related disease.
The program will cover BioPartnering for CNS, with industry keynotes and panels on AD, PD, Neuropsychiatry and Pain Management. Moreover, there are panels on innovation in NeuroTech covering banking, device, diagnostics and software. The target audience are buy and sell side analysts from investment banks and funds and partnering executives from pharma, biotech and medtech companies.
