Neurodegeneration: a vascular perspective


 Tuesday 10 March, 2020 | Maastricht, The Netherlands 

 

Research on Neurodegenerative diseases has been evolving tremendously the last decade thanks to new technological developments and due to the urgent need to prevent and/or find cures for our ageing population. Furthermore, it has become evident that cardiovascular risk factors and diseases (e.g. hypertension, diabetes, heart failure) can contribute to the development of neurodegenerative diseases. These organ-based frontiers have to be abolished to allow a better understanding, prevention and treatment of neurodegenerative diseases. This workshop aims at presenting recent epidemiological, genetic, dietary and therapeutic investigations looking at neurodegeneration from a vascular perspective.
