Meeting ID: 342 576 7609
Passcode: 822068

Abstract: Neuroinflammation is a hallmark of many neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer’s Disease (AD), Parkinson’s Disease (PD) and Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). Microglia is a key immune regulator for inflammatory response in the central nervous system (CNS). In this workshop, we invite experts from LMU and China to present their up-to-date findings covering basic mechanistic studies on microglia to potential therapeutic applications in neurodegenerative disease. These topics provide important aspects not only in basic research but also for clinical application. We seek to establish and expand Chinese-German scientific cooperation to better investigate the importance of microglia in the pathomechanisms of neurodegenerative disease; better understand the crosstalk between microglia and other CNS cells in the context of neuroinflammation; explore potential therapeutic strategies targeting neuroinflammation.
