1 Feb 2024

The Sunita Sanghi Centre of Ageing and Neurodegenerative Diseases (SCAN) orchestrated the notable SCAN Annual Symposium 2024, bringing together a diverse assembly of experts, researchers, and professionals dedicated to the advancement of understanding and treatment of neurodegenerative diseases. The symposium was held on January 9th and 10th, 2024, at the Victor Menezes Convention Centre (VMCC) on campus, and explored the latest research, findings, and innovations surrounding neurodegeneration—an urgent global issue impacting millions.

The core theme of the symposium was “Recent Trends in Neurodegeneration” and underscored its commitment to navigating the ever-evolving landscape of neurodegenerative diseases. Participants immersed themselves in dialogue with esteemed speakers and scientists, unravelling intricate cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying these complex disorders. Across the two-day event, attendees gained profound insights into the challenges posed by neurodegenerative disorders, discussing groundbreaking discoveries that could revolutionize approaches to diagnosis, treatment, and care.

The symposium culminated with a dynamic poster session that enveloped participants in an atmosphere of lively discourse and the exchange of knowledge. This interactive phase not only served as a platform for researchers to unveil their projects but also facilitated the dissemination of innovative findings and the receipt of invaluable feedback from fellow peers.

As the curtains were drawn on the SCAN Annual Symposium 2024, the echoes of impactful discussions and groundbreaking insights resonated within the corridors of neurodegenerative research. With each presentation and shared discovery, the symposium leaves an indelible mark on the trajectory of neurodegenerative studies, promising a future where collective efforts reshape the landscape of understanding and addressing these complex disorders.
