It is our pleasure to invite you to the 1st White Matter Rounds Symposium and Round Table on Tuesday, June 7, 2022 from 8 AM - 1 PM EST.

The purpose of the event is to bring together white matter diseases researchers, clinicians, and trainees, and to provide the latest in undiagnosed adult genetic leukoencephalopathies and their overlap with acquired myelin disorders. In addition, the symposium aims to foster research collaborations that will accelerate discovery in undiagnosed genetic white matter diseases through an interdisciplinary approach.

This half-day conference features two sessions of plenary talks by guest speakers followed by a Round Table among the regular participants to the WM Rounds.

There is no conference fee but registration is mandatory.

Key Topics

  • Clinical and radiological advances in the diagnosis of adult hereditary white matter disorders
  • Genetic mimickers of multiple sclerosis and other acquired myelin disorders
  • The importance of Open Science for international collaborative networks

We hope you will join us for a fruitful and enriching event.
