This conference is for families coping with progressive supranuclear palsy (PSP) and corticobasal degeneration (CBD). Professionals and anyone in the community are also welcome to attend.
The conference will be run from 8am to 5pm. The morning will feature international researchers in town for a major conference on PSP, CBD, and tau. The afternoon will feature Bay Area clinicians (from UCSF and Stanford), healthcare professionals, and those on the PSP/CBD journey.
See the great speaker line-up on the agenda.
In recent days, several people have asked how this conference is different from the CurePSP conference on October 26-27. That CurePSP conference is for international researchers. All of the talks at the CurePSP conference will be at a very high-level. (I don’t know of any laypeople who can understand even 20% of those talks.)
It seemed like a great opportunity to ask those international researchers to stay in town through Saturday noon to give shorter and easier-to-understand talks to laypeople. That’s what we’ve done! We’ve worked with CurePSP to know who was speaking at their conference.
Our main planning partner is Dr. Adam Boxer and the team at the UCSF Memory & Aging Center. UCSF is the lead institution for PSP and CBD clinical trials. We are lucky to have them in our backyard!
