A Biochemical Society Scientific Meeting

Leucine Rich Repeat Kinase 2 has emerged as a major genetic determinant of Parkinson's disease, placing this multidomain enzyme at the core of research efforts for the development of both disease modifying therapies as well as disease related biomarkers. Given the success of the previous LRRK2 focused meetings, the Biochemical Society launch a third edition of this event where the latest biochemical, cellular and translational LRRK2 research will be discussed in the frame of future clinical applications.

Topics include:

  • LRRK2 genetics
  • LRRK2 structural biology
  • LRRK2 animal models
  • LRRK2 in immune function
  • LRRK2 intracellular pathways
  • LRRK2/alpha-synuclein interaction in Parkinson's disease pathogenesis
  • LRRK2 in neuronal function
  • LRRK2 substrate and effectors
  • LRRK2 pathways to clinic
  • LRRK2 in other diseases

Abstract deadline:
2 July 2018

Abstract submission now open 

Earlybird registration deadline: 2 July 2018
