2015 NMO Roundtable Conference



The Guthy – Jackson Charitable Foundation’s 2015 NMO Roundtable Conference was the foundation’s seventh and largest scientific event.

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 potential NMO drug discovery, and/or drug repurposing and/or clinical trials.

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 Biorepository Oversight Committee, CIRCLES, International Clinical Consortium, Industry Council, and a poster session featuring 22 submissions.
