Date/Time ET: Friday, December 10, 2021 - 11:30 AM  – 1:00 PM

Description: Arguably no medical specialty has benefited more from the last decade of genomic advances than Neurology, and the pace of discoveries continued in 2021. This session aims to keep attendees up-to-date by providing key updates from four broad facets of neurogenetic inquiry: advances in methodologies; key gene discoveries; sociological and ethical implications of genetics; and exciting developments in molecular therapies.
