About this Research Topic
This Research Topic aims to gather reviews and perspectives from experts attending the UK-Israel Synergy Symposium on 'Protein Misfolding in Ageing and Neurodegeneration: From Basic Biology to Drug Development' held in London on the 26th - 28th March 2018.
The symposium will bring together top UK and Israeli scientists working in different fields of Neuroscience, related to ageing diseases and neurodegeneration, sharing new ideas and latest results to develop complementary ways of thinking. Specific areas of interests will be the importance of post-translational modifications in protein aggregation, cross-talk between ageing diseases, the frontiers of dementia studies and the development of new approaches to drug design. The event will provide an important occasion for confrontation, and a reference forum to promote new collaborations. The personal face-to-face interactions created during this meeting will be essential for increasing scientific communication and establishing new long-lasting collaborations. Our goal is not only to learn more about cutting-edge research on protein aggregation in neurodegeneration, but also to create a marketplace of ideas and tools for a more global approach to neuroscience.
Curated by Prof. Annalisa Pastore and Dr. Elsa Zacco, this Research Topic will provide a forum for the dissemination of ideas arising from the symposium.
Note from the editorial office: please note that peer-review of manuscripts submitted to the Research Topic will be overseen by Associate Editors from the board of the Protein Folding, Misfolding and Degradation specialty section.
Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
