Neuroinflammation plays a prominent role in the onset and progression of neurodegenerative diseases, including Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. Exactly how neuroinflammation leads to neurodegeneration is unclear, but neuroinflammation is associated with altered CNS homeostasis, protein misfolding, and neuronal degradation. This webinar, brought to you by The Scientist and sponsored by PerkinElmer | Cisbio, will highlight the complex interactions between neuroinflammation and neurodegeneration, as well as how scientists are securing a better understanding of this relationship.

Topics to be covered

  • Innate immunity in neurodegenerative disease
  • Incorporating functional assays to understand immune-glial interactions in both acute injury and chronic disease
