This year’s Southeastern Neurodegenerative Disease Conference (SENDCon) will be held Sept. 28-30 at the Hyatt Regency Coconut Point Resort and Spa in Bonita Springs.
Started in 2018 by MBI investigators Jada Lewis, Ph.D., and Malú Gámez Tansey, Ph.D., with colleagues at Emory University, SENDCon has expanded attendance from the initial three states of Florida, Georgia and Alabama to include researchers from South Carolina, North Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, Kentucky and Puerto Rico.
The MBI provided the seed funding to start the conference to highlight neurodegeneration research in the Southeastern U.S.
In-person attendance for this year’s conference is $50-100 for members of the Alzheimer’s Association International Society to Advance Alzheimer’s Research and Treatment (ISTAART) or $150 for non-members. Virtual attendance is free for ISTAART members or $25 for non-members.
SENDCon aims to build a network of collaboration among early career dementia researchers, scientists and students who work on Alzheimer’s disease, ALS, chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE), frontotemporal dementias, Huntington’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, stroke, traumatic brain injury and other neurodegenerative disorders.
