Registrations for the 4th DPS conference in Utrecht are now open!

After another successful DPS conference in Nijmegen in 2023, we are delighted to organize the 2024 edition in Utrecht! We hereby invite all members of the Dutch Parkinson Scientists to attend the DPS conference on Friday November 1st, 9:00-17:00 in Utrecht. 

Location: de Zalen van Zeven, Boothstraat 7, Utrecht

This years' theme is Translational Neuroscience: we will discuss relevant topics varying from transplantation technologies to drug-screening as well as molecular and clinical approaches. As a keynote we invited Prof. dr. Thomas Perlmann from the Karolinska Institutet, Stockholm, Sweden for an exciting talk on his work regarding dopamine neuron development and regeneration medicine approaches to study PD. 

All researchers joining the conference are invited to submit an abstract, also if your work is not directly linked to the theme! Abstract deadline is August 31st 2024

In addition, all junior members are invited to also join the pre-conference on Thursday October 31st 2024, 13:00-17:30h, which is all about a career in PD research beyond a PhD and/or postdoc. After the junior event on Thursday October 31st 2024 there is an opportunity for all interested (both juniors/seniors/everyone) to join for dinner in the city center of Utrecht for € 37,50. More information on the final program of this junior pre-conference afternoon will be shared soon on the DPS website, and a separate email to the junior members.

Sign up here:

Registrations are open until August 31st, 2024 (with abstract) or October 15th, 2024 (without abstract), or until the maximum capacity of the venue has been reached.

Looking forward to seeing you in Utrecht!
