EAN Congress 201816-06-2018
The 4th Congress of the European Academy of Neurology (EAN) takes place in Lisbon, Portugal from June 16-19, 2018.
The overarching theme for the Lisbon conference will be ‘Neurogenetics’. Diagnosis and treatment are increasingly using genetic methods and one purpose of the congress is to highlight clinically useful aspects of genetic medicine in Neurology. But as always, progress in all fields of neurology will be presented and participants will be updated about recent developments and news in clinical neurology. The full congress programme can be viewed HERE.
