On Thursday December 6th, the ENCALS satellite meeting was held prior the 29th International Symposium on ALS/MND in Glasgow, UK. The goal was to discuss international collaborations, SOPs and translation of new developments to the clinic.
Chairman of ENCALS, Prof. Leonard van den Berg, kicked the meeting off with an update showing the growth of ENCALS.
Each year, more ALS centres join ENCALS and more participants attend the annual meeting.
A lot of interesting presentations followed. The variety in the research focus of the different projects and collaborations that were presented made the meeting to fit its goal. Visit the meeting page for more information
After a short update of Project MinE by Prof. Jan Veldink, the meeting was closed by Prof. Corcia with an invitation to the ENCALS meeting 2019 in Tours, France.
The ENCALS board thanks all presenters for their participation in the organization of a succesful meeting.
