19th International Workshop on Fragile X and other Neurodevelopmental Disorders
Dal 18/09/2019 ore 15.00 al 21/09/2019 ore 14.00
Hotel Hilton Sorrento Palace, Via Sant'Antonio, 13, 00067 Sorrento (NA), Italy
This Workshop has acquired the reputation of the premier conference in the field of fragile X, X-linked intellectual disability and other neurodevelopmental disorders. It has occurred biannually since 1983 when a small group of experts were invited to the first International Workshop on Fragile X in Washington, DC to share clinical and genetic data for a better delineation of the syndrome and in pursuit of the causal gene, which was discovered in 1991 and announced at the fifth Workshop in Strasbourg, France.
Since this field heavily relies upon multidisciplinary collaboration by clinical and molecular experts, participants at these meetings includes molecular geneticists, molecular, biologists, mouse behaviourists, pharmacologists, neurophysiologists, neuropathologists, clinical geneticists, neurologists, psychiatrists, pharmaceutical scientists and experts in clinical trials.
This would be the 19th edition of the Workshop and will continue to play a pivotal role in stimulating interdisciplinary research in the field of neurodevelopmental disorders.
This Workshop is unique in bringing together investigators from academia as well as pharma and biotech industry, studying a broad variety of neurodevelopmental disorders, with the long-term goal of moving from the knowledge of the genetic cause and pathogenesis to the discovery of a cure.
In this regard, the 2019 Workshop is likely to be one of the most exciting and important meetings to date. We expect to bring together an outstanding and diverse group of scientists at the forefront of research and we are making every effort to include younger scientists and students as well.
This Workshop will provide cutting edge view of the growing studies on:
- Fragile X and FMR1-related diseases
- Other XLID and autosomal ID conditions
- Syndromes caused by multiple “single gene” defects
- Mechanisms of disease using human models
- Autism, the unending nightmare of the geneticist
- Epigenetic signatures and diagnostic biomarkers
