Neurodegeneration Retreat

Hosted by Stanford Pathology

Fogarty Winery

How about a sunny day in the Santa Cruz Mountains…

that brings together the local neurodegenerative community?! We aim to learn and discuss how novel next-generation technologies in sequencing, imaging, and data science has advanced the field, and to address key challenges of the complexity of the human brain to find novel solutions for neurodegenerative diseases.

We invite students, clinical and postdoctoral fellows, research associates, instructors, and faculty with an interest in neurodegeneration to spend a day together to engage in new aspects of disease etiology and mechanisms; and dive into next-generation technologies to unravel mechanisms and pathways in the organization of the human brain that—if disturbed—lead to neuronal vulnerability.

We hope this retreat will spark insightful discussions on disease pathogenesis, stimulate cross-fertilization, and facilitate opportunities for new collaborative studies and funding.

The retreat is hosted by the Department of Pathology at the Stanford University School of Medicine, co-sponsored by the Department of Pathology and the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative, and supported by the Pacific Udall Center and Stanford Alzheimer's Disease Research Center. Our scientific organizers are Vinita Ganesh Chittoor, Faria Zafar, and Birgitt Schuele.
