EHDN2014: The network celebrates its 10th birthday
The 8th plenary meeting of the European Huntington’s Disease Network took place in Barcelona, Spain, from 19 to 21 September 2014, in conjunction with the bi-annual meeting of the European Huntington’s Disease Association.
Held at the Hesperia Tower Convention Centre in the outskirts of the city, it drew 913 delegates from Europe, the Americas and beyond, and was marked by a spirit of cautious optimism. Ten years into the life of the EHDN, effective therapies are on the horizon, but bringing them within reach will require slow, methodical work. The meeting also provided an opportunity to pay tribute to outgoing chair Bernhard Landwehrmeyer, who steered the EHDN so skilfully through its first decade.
A full report of the plenary meeting is in preparation, but we would like to use this newsletter to draw your attention to some of the highlights.
