The VII edition of the International Congress on Innovation and Research in Neurodegenerative Diseases (CIIIEN) will held on September 17-20, 2019 in Valencia, Spain with the support of the Queen Sofia Foundation, at the Santiago Grisolía Auditorium of the Museu de les Ciències. This key meeting on Neurodegenerative Diseases will be based on two great axes: Social and Health Care Research Symposium (September 17), organized by the National Reference Centre for Alzheimer´s and Dementia Cares´s (CREA) of IMSERSO and the Scientific Congress (September 18-20) organized by the Center of Research in Neurological Diseases (CIEN) Foundation and the Center for Networked Biomedical Research in Neurodegenerative Diseases (CIBERNED). Each thematic area is aimed at a different audience and has its own programme to give us a more complete overview of Alzheimer´s Disease and other neurodegenerative diseases in order to advance the understanding of these pathologies:
The Social and Health Care Research Symposium on Alzheimer´s and other dementias.
Innovative experiences related to the use of non-pharmacological therapies and people-centered care will be shown in order to promote social health research and normalize the daily lives of people with dementia and their families.
This forum, which will host the most relevant national experts, seeks from a scientific approach to respond to both professionals and caregivers on how to improve the quality of life of people living with Alzheimer's disease or other dementias.
As in previous years, the CRE of Alzheimer's together with the Reina Sofia Foundation, and through these meetings, aims to bring society closer to the advances of research in the fight against Alzheimer's disease and, above all, to raise the evident need to advance in the search for global solutions and responses.
The Scientific Congress on Research and Innovation in Neurodegenerative Diseases focuses on main research advances in neurodegenerative disorders, particularly Alzheimer´s, Parkinson´s, Huntington´s diseases and Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis. This annual meeting is organized under the denomination of International Congress on Innovation and Research in Neurodegenerative Diseases (CIIIEN) 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) and offers a forum to discuss a range of areas of interest related to basic, clinical and translational aspects of the research on the neurodegenerative diseases. This forum provides opportunities to researchers to discuss and entertain topics that stretch into the future and will be vital to procure the advancement of cooperative research. In addition, there will be many opportunities to meet and network with colleagues from the field, to share experiences and learn from each other. More than 400 researchers from several countries such as Anetta Norberg (Karolinska Institute, Sweden), Hilal Lashuel (École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne, Switzerland) or Ernest Arenas (Karolinska Institute, Sweden), will attend to this International Congress.
