A small group of experts and early-career researches met in New York to exchange latest results and views on „Alzheimer’s, Related Disorders and Autophagy“. So far, researchers worldwide have not been successful to unravel the mechanisms underlying neurodegenerative diseases. More recently, malfunctioning autophagy-related processes have been discussed as a possible cause. On this occasion, among others, SFB 1177 Speaker Ivan Dikic and Vice Speaker Christian Behl presented their latest data to the audience. The scientific workshop was followed by an evening session with more general discussions on future perspectives of Alzheimer’s treatment.

The event was organized by Christian Behl (University Medical Center of the Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz) and Ralph Nixon (Nathan S. Kline Institute for Psychiatry, NYU Langone Medical Center) in cooperation with the German Center for Research and Innovation (DWIH, New York). It was funded by the Dr. Eberhard Strebel-Stiftung and the University Medical Center of the Johannes Gutenberg University in Mainz.
