November has been an incredibly busy time for us, not because of Christmas, but because the 23rd International Symposium on ALS/MND is now only one week away! We’ve been incredibly busy building up for this year’s symposium including; preparing the final abstract book, promoting the #alssymp hashtag on Twitter and gathering enough information to support Belinda before she flies off to Chicago.
Abstracts, abstracts, abstracts!
As well as all of this, the abstracts were, for the first time, made available online, with free open-access, earlier this month. This was a milestone for us as previous years we just had hard copies of all of the abstracts available at the symposium. However, with advances in mobile technology and WiFi, this year it was decided that only the platform presentations would be available as hard copies during the symposium and all abstracts would be available online and free to view for all.
You can view and download the abstracts online now via our website.
We, the Motor Neurone Disease Association, will be proudly reporting LIVE from the symposium through this blog. We will be reporting on a variety of interesting topics and talks so that you can be up to date with what is happening in terms of MND research.
If you want to follow the symposium on Twitter, you can do so by following the #alssymp hashtag.
