Accelerating Diagnosis and Treatment of Neurological Diseases
Introducing the inaugural Bionow Neuroscience conference, created to bring together academics, clinicians and industry experts in the spirit of collaboration & growth.
The conference aims to highlight the strengths in the discovery, development and commercialisation of neuroscience treatments and technologies across North England and beyond. The event will showcase key developments across neuroscience, including a range of neurological diseases and conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease, cerebal palsy, dementia, epilepsy, Huntington’s disease, motor neurone disease (MND) and Parkinson’s disease.

Why attend?
The Bionow Neuroscience Conference will explore the current challenges and opportunities facing Neuroscience, highlighting new approaches that will create opportunities for R&D, commercialisation and implementation plus will consider the impact on patient outcomes.
Bringing the expertise, funding and new technologies together in the neuroscience field is one of the biggest challenges facing the Life Sciences sector and society at large. The aim of this conference is to bring together all these elements and contribute to the eradication of these diseases.
