UPDATED: 6th Congress of the European Academy of Neurology
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the European Academy of Neurology (EAN) has decided to cancel all in-person attendance and face-to-face activities at the Annual Congress. The event will be transformed in a Virtual Congress.
The 6th EAN congress takes place virtually between May 23 – May 26, 2020 with the overarching theme Time for Action: Predict, Prevent, Repair.
Predict, Prevent, Repair are the 3 fundamental challenges in dealing with neurological diseases. Preclinical detection of diseases, developing disease-modifying treatments that will provide neuroprotection, and interventional approaches to repair or compensate for neurological alterations are currently hot and challenging topics.
Novel therapeutic interventions, designed to predict, prevent and repair across the spectrum of neurodegenerative diseases, neuro-inflammation, stroke, epilepsy, sleep disorders, neuromuscular disorders and genetic disorders will be in the focus of many sessions.
The Named Lectures in 2020 are:
Brain Prize Lecture with Marie-Germaine Bousser, Paris, France
Moritz Romberg Lecture with Giorgio Cruccu, Rome, Italy
- Risk prediction and precision medicine in stroke prevention
- Preventing disability progression in Multiple Sclerosis: from basic science to clinical care
- Epilepsy Surgery: Timing and preventing adverse outcome
- Halting neurodegeneration and repair in Huntington's disease: recent developments and insights for other neurodegenerative diseases
Focused Workshop Epilepsy
- Status epilepticus: time critical management
- Epilepsy: Impact of diagnostic and treatment delay
- Auto-immune epilepsy: delay, diagnosis and treatment challenges
Focused Workshop Stroke: "Can we protect and repair the brain after stroke?"
- Renaissance of neuroprotection in the era of recanalization?
- Will there ever be a mechanism to repair the brain after stroke?
- How can we protect the brain from secondary brain damage after ICH?
