Leading researchers presenting
The meeting organized by SPATAX, Erare PREPARE_Ataxia and Ataxia Study Group (ASG) on spastic paraparesis and ataxia in Nice, France (2019 September 20-21) gathered 160 scientists and patients from 21 countries from 4 continents. It followed a satellite workshop focused on recessive ataxias organized by the Erare PREPARE_Ataxia consortium (10 countries, September 19-20 in Nice).
The 19 seminars, 12 oral presentations from abstracts selection and the 70 posters allowed a lot of exchanges between researchers and to hear the voice of patients.
Here is a summary of the oral presentations.
