Neurotherapeutics Symposium 2022: Integrating Equity with Translational Research
January 28 @ 12:00 pm - January 29 @ 4:30 pm
The Neurotherapeutics Symposium 2022 will be the third in a series of conferences organized by the department of neurology of the University of Rochester in collaboration with other departments of neurology across the United States with the goal of accelerating the translation of advances in neurological therapy into improved health outcomes for all patients. The first Neurotherapeutics Symposium occurred in 2018 and focused on neuromuscular and movement disorders. The second one occurred in 2019 and focused on neurological emergencies. In both conferences, a concern shared by attendees and speakers was the lack of comprehensive efforts to educate the workforce on inequities that may begin and could be addressed during the translational research phase of therapy development.
