NDC Symposium

NDC Symposium 2016

Welcome to the Neurobiology of Disease in Children (NDC).

The topic for the 2016 NDC Symposium is Neurofibromatosis. The NDC Symposium is a forum for preeminent investigators assembled to discuss recent accomplishments and future directions with a large group of child neurologists, program officers from the National Institutes of Health, and members of dedicated foundations and associations.
This Web site is a hub of information about the 2016 NDC Symposium for speakers, panelists, young investigators and Child Neurology Society conference attendees. The Web site also serves as a portal for information about this year's topic, Neurofibromatosis, for researchers, practitioners, and friends and families of affected children. Following the Symposium, 6-to 10-minute summary audio podcasts of key topics and speakers will be uploaded for the community at large.

In 2001, NDC held its first symposium and it was also on the topic of Neurofibromatosis. In the last 15 years, there have been many advances in the field and there are currently over 50 interventional drug therapies at different stages of development when compared to 2001 when there were none. I hope you enjoy the 16th NDC symposium on Neurofibromatosis!
