Neurodevelopmental disorders - POSTPONED

New date: 8 - 10 September 2021

Conference Synopsis 

Many genetic causes of neurodevelopmental disorders have been elucidated in the last decade. A substantial proportion of the causative genes cluster in the chromatin remodeling pathway. The aim of this conference is to highlight the common pathways involved in multiple chromatin remodeling disorders as well as to provide participants with an overview of the methodologies in this rapidly expanding field of epigenetic research. This meeting will bring together scientists and clinicians involved in genetic disease identification, characterization and treatment, as well as those involved in the development of epigenetic methodology. The scientific conference will be completed by a patient community gathering of families with the Helsmoortel - Van der Aa syndrome, a leading cause of  syndromic autism due to mutations in ADNP.

The scientific conference will be held at the University of Antwerp at Stadscampus on 8-9 September 2021. The programme consists of lectures by invited speakers and short talks selected from abstracts by young investigators. The patient community day is scheduled on Friday September 10. An informal social programme for parents and scientists will be organized on the evening of Thursday 9 September.
