4th Annual Dutch Parkinson Scientists Congress

Dear DPS member,

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 congress on Friday November 1st 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 linked to the theme! More information on costs, registration and abstract submission will follow soon.  

In addition, all junior members are invited to also join the pre-conference on Thursday October 31st 2024 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. Again, more information on costs and registration will follow soon.

Looking forward to seeing you in Utrecht!

Best wishes,

DPS Congress Committee 2024
