Ataxia and Related Disorders
Martin Paucar, MD, PhD - Karolinska Institute, Stockholm, Sweden
Per Svenningsson, MD, PhD - Karolinska Institute, Stockholm, Sweden
This broad and comprehensive clinical course aims to provide an update on ataxias and related disorders. With an emphasis on the genetic forms of ataxia and related disorders, we aim to provide an update on the acquired forms of these conditions. This course will be led by faculty who are leading experts in the field and are involved in the search for biomarkers and disease modifying therapies. This is the first course to focus on ataxia organized by the MDS-European Section.
This course is intended for residents and fellows involved in adult and pediatric neurology. It is also aimed at basic researchers who are working on cerebellar degeneration and genetics.
- Examine the underlying etiology of ataxia and related disorders;
- Analyze evidence based care for patients with different types of ataxia and paraparesis and identify treatable conditions;
- Differentiate between the most common neurodegenerative ataxia disorders associated with nucleotide expansions;
- Understand the association between impaired DNA repair and neurodegeneration;
- Gain insights on the current search for biomarkers and disease modifying therapies
MDS is able to provide participants with a Letter of Support and any course-related documentation needed to assist in obtaining a visa. Please note that MDS is unable to contact the Embassy on your behalf. It is the responsibility of each participant to make the necessary arrangements related to this process.
