The European funded research consortium GENCODYS exploits a multilevel approach to resolve the integrative networks in intellectual disabilities. We are bringing together top researchers with complementary expertise and patient representatives to apply a systems biology approach to reveal the common molecular and cellular mechanisms leading to cognitive impairment and translational research possibilities. Our overall concept that also will be strongly reflected in the program of our conference is to: (1) Identify novel genes involved in cognitive disorders; (2) Elucidate associated molecular networks that are commonly disrupted in CD; and (3) Identify genetic modifiers and small compounds that are able to modulate the disease phenotype.
We aim to bring together about 200 top researcher, medical doctors and patient representatives, who represent the top in Cognitive Research and related activities. We will have about 20 invited speakers from the international top including speakers from our own top consortium. An additional 20 speakers will be selected on the bases of their recent achievement and submitted abstract. Talks and submissions for talks have to be related to studies of cognitive dysfunction but can be in widely varying fields, including genetics, cellular, molecular and physiological studies, genomics and epigenomics and bioinformatics. Integrative network approaches and focus on overlapping disease mechanisms between different disorders are prioritized.
If you don’t want to miss the exciting developments in neurogenetics-driven cognitive research, it makes sense to take part in this International Conference on Integrative Networks in Cognitive Dysfunction!
ICS will attend the meeting through scientific oral communication.
