The Guthy – Jackson Charitable Foundation’s 2019 International NMO Roundtable Conference was the foundation’s eleventh scientific research conference.

The goals of the NMO Roundtable Conference were to:

  1. Learn about recent scientific and/or clinical advances in NMO research.
  2. Reconvene the “best of the best” in neurodegenerative disease research for the purpose of continued information sharing and facilitating further strategic partnering for NMO research.
  3. Align pharmaceutical, clinical and scientific strategies toward NMO therapeutics.

The conference kicked off with a new feature Breakthrough Symposium, highlighting the positive results of the four Phase III clinical trials by GJCF industry council members Alexion, Chugai and Viela Bio. The next day, GJCF-funded Principal Investigators as well as other international scientists and clinicians presented their scientific findings and clinical progress to attendees with the intent of addressing the current and future status of scientific research, best clinical practices and pharmaceutical pathways. These presentations and panel discussions enhanced international collaboration to help advance the scientific and clinical knowledge of and work toward treatment and a potential cure for NMO.

The NMO Roundtable Conference also featured meetings for the International Clinical Consortium, Industry Council, and a poster session featuring 19 submissions.
