Neurodevelopmental channelopathies impact the responsiveness of cells in the central nervous system to typical electrochemical signals. These signal disruptions can range in severity, from mild to intense, leading to epilepsy and speech disturbances. In one example, genetic variations to a gene encoding a voltage-gated sodium channel (SCN3A) can result in neurodevelopmental delays and disturbances. Advanced Cell Diagnostics brings an expert whose research into the genetics of SCN3A-based channelopathies promises to untangle the web of SCN3A’s role in neurodevelopment and beyond. Attendees will have the opportunity to interact with experts, ask questions, and seek advice on topics related to their research.

Topics to be covered:

  • The molecular and mechanistic similarities and differences between neurodegenerative diseases
  • Whether primary and secondary neurodegeneration distinctions are based on biology
