NDC Symposium 2017

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

The topic for the 2017 NDC Symposium is Leukodystrophy. 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 website is a hub of information about the 2017 NDC Symposium for speakers, panelists, young investigators and Child Neurology Society conference attendees. The website also serves as a portal for information about this year's topic, Leukodystrophy, 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.

The second NDC in 2002 was on the topic of Leukodystrophy and it was co-directed by Drs. Hugo Moser and Sakku Naidu. In the last 15 years, there have been many advances in the field and I am delighted that Dr. Naidu will return as a co-director with Drs. Ali Fatemi and Gustavo Maegawa. I hope you enjoy the 17th NDC symposium on Leukodystrophy!
