INTERNATIONAL CONGRESS ON RESEARCH AND INNOVATION ON NEURODEGENERATIVE DISEASES

September 23-24, 2013. Meliá Castilla Hotel, Madrid (Spain).

The Centre for Network Biomedical Research on Neurodegenerative Diseases (CIBERNED), the CIEN Foundation (Centre for Research on Neurological Diseases) and the Queen Sofia Foundation have been working together for several years in the fight against one of the serious health problems most frequently found amongst the Spanish population: neurodegeneration.

In this context, these three institutions actively contributed to the creation of the Queen Sofia Foundation’s Alzheimer Centre, built in Vallecas (Madrid), also the CIEN Foundation’s headquarters since 2007.

At present the CIEN Foundation-CIBERNED Consortium is the only research centre in Spain - and one of the few in the world – recognized as Centre of Excellence on Neurodegeneration (COEN), an initiative of the European Union Joint Research Program on Neurodegenerative Diseases (JPND) designed to face the growing challenges posed by this group of pathologies. Its aim is to improve the effect of research by means of aligning ongoing national research programs and identifying mutual objectives, thus benefiting from joint actions.

Every year from 2007 CIBERNED and CIEN Foundation organize a Scientific Forum which last year had a high representative of the Queen Sofia Foundation as a guest. From this interaction the idea arose for the three institutions to jointly organize and International Congress on Research and Innovation on Neurodegenerative Diseases (CIIEN). This Congress will be held on 23 and 24 September, 2013. With Her Majesty Queen Sofia as Chairperson, it will be attended by prestigious international researchers, leaders in the research on the main neurodegenerative disorders. In this way the Congress will seek to strengthen interaction and cooperation between national and international bodies in the fields of basic and clinical research, public and translational health, supporting new and multidisciplinary approaches and strengthening the existing capacities across the whole range of research.
