International Meeting on Spastic Paraparesis and Ataxias

June 23-25, 2016

hosted by the Institut du Cerveau et de la Moelle épinière, Paris, France

Ataxias and spastic paraplegias are opposite ends of a continuum of neurological disorders. The fifth international meeting on spastic paraparesis and ataxias includes plenary talks from leaders in the field of spinocerebellar diseases (dominant and recessive forms of cerebellar ataxias and spastic paraplegias) and short talks or poster presentations from junior researchers. Opportunities of exchanges on the topics of genetics, physiopathology and treatment approaches is a key occasion for advancing research for such rare disorders. This meeting is organized by the members of the Ataxia Study Group (ASG) and of the SPATAX Network.
