ABOUT US

Salamanca

The Global Summit on Neurodegenerative Diseases NEURO 2020/2022 will take place in the city of Salamanca from June 21 to 24, 2022, under the presidency of H.M. Queen Sofia. This Summit is held within the framework of the event of exceptional interest, "Neurodegenerative Diseases 2020. International Year of Neuro2020 Research and Innovation". That event aims to promote research into neurodegenerative diseases and raise public awareness of the social consequences of these pathologies.

This meeting is annually celebrated under the denomination of International Congress on Innovation and Research in Neurodegenerative Diseases (CiiiEN) and focuses on major research advances in neurodegenerative disorders, particularly Alzheimer's, Parkinson, ALS, and Huntington's diseases. The Congress has been organized since 2013 by the Queen Sofia Foundation, the Center of Research in Neurological Diseases (CIEN) and the Center for Networked Biomedical Research in Neurodegenerative Diseases (CIBERNED). It offers a forum to exchange and discuss a range of areas of interest related to basic, clinical and translational aspects of the research on neurodegenerative diseases. The Summit will focus on scientific research by the CIEN Foundation and CIBERNED. Researchers from several countries will attend this Global Summit. Noteworthy is the participation of 2013 Nobel Prize winner in Medicine, Thomas C. Sudhof (Stanford University, California, USA), among other prestigious researchers.

The University of Salamanca will lend its facilities and services for the proper development of the scientific sessions.The GLOBAL SUMMIT Neuro2020/22 will also collaborate with the City Council of Salamanca, which will provide some resources to the cultural activities associated with the scientific program.

We look forward to welcoming you to Salamanca.
