The third edition of “Translational neuroscience Day: challenges and opportunities” is organized by Dhune and NeurATRIS and hosted by BioFit on December 10, 2019.

About Translational Neuroscience

Translational Neuroscience research helps to provide R & D continuum from discovery to clinical phases by gathering multidisciplinary expertise, state-of-the-art technology platforms and innovative methodologies.

Neurodegenerative diseases market covers a large and diverse pipeline of almost 1 500 products. However, not a single therapeutic approach exists to prevent or even slow down degeneration in AD, PD, HD and MS.

Translational Neuroscience research is a mandatory step in drug development to ensure that the next generation of innovative strategies will be made available for the benefit of patients and society.

About our event “Translational Neuroscience Day”

NeurATRIS has already set up and organized “Translational Neuroscience Day” with 2 successful editions in December 2017 and January 2019.

For the third edition, Dhune and NeurATRIS decided to join their expertise to offer an event that will highlight innovative translational research for neurodegenerative diseases with a market focus. Thus, academia-industry relationships will be developed not only from the science and technology point of view but also through training / education required to constantly remain at the forefront of innovation.

This new edition will gather experts in neurodegenerative diseases and foster interactions between researchers, clinicians, biotech and pharmaceutical companies.

Examples of advanced translational projects


DHUNE is an initiative of French government which aims to federate both public and private stakeholders from the south French region involved in the field of neurodegenerative diseases and aging. The objective of DHUNE is to accelerate the research and the innovation using a large and integrated medico-socio-economic network with more than one hundred twenty industrial and academic partners.


NeurATRIS is a French research infrastructure conceived to accelerate the translation of discoveries in basic research into medical innovations in order to develop innovative approaches for the diagnosis and treatment for neurodegenerative diseases. NeurATRIS also offers an access to a powerful range of expertise and state-of-the-art platforms covering the entire value chain of neuroscience translational research.
