It was very useful to see other early clinical programs. Interesting biomarker session. Excellent neuroinflammatory angle. Good to know about HDAC-2 inhibitors.

Attendee at the 2015 Meeting

This remains a favorite meeting of mine due to the openness to new concepts and creative sharing of problem solving supportive and reinforcing rather than contentious-which given the breadth of viewpoints, is a welcome change.

Attendee at the 2014 Meeting

After my talk, three separate people approached me to set up collaborations on our common interests. Now, that’s a successful meeting!
