Neurodegeneration

Working group for HPAN
Organizer: Chris Weihl Read More

About

The Neurodegeneration Research Group is the working group for the Hope Center Program on Protein Aggregation & Neurodegeneration (HPAN), the most formalized of the Hope Center Research groups. HPAN’s goal is to develop better ways to diagnose and treat neurodegenerative diseases through an understanding of the underlying molecular mechanisms that lead to protein aggregation and disease. Group meetings are in two different formats, a lab meeting and a PI chalk talk (PIs only), and are open to investigators in the Washington University community.

All meetings are listed on the Neuroscience Calendar of the Office of Neuroscience Research.
