Researchers Welcoming Patients – Neurological and Neurodegenerative Diseases

28 November 2014

In partnership with 12 patient associations, nearly 100 Inserm researchers and 17 Inserm laboratories working in the area of neurological diseases, particularly neurodegenerative diseases, will open their doors, for one day, to patients and their families: a chance to get an update on existing knowledge, ongoing research and the challenges involved.

Participants: Patients and those close to them, and anyone interested in research-related matters 
Venues: Caen, Clermont-Ferrand, Grenoble, Lille, Marseille, Montpellier, Nantes, Paris, Strasbourg, Toulouse and Tours
Date: Friday 28 November 2014
Arrangements: Visit the website

The ones most eagerly awaiting advances in research are patients and disabled people. This is why Inserm opens up its laboratories and joins with numerous associations to organise the "Researchers Welcoming Patients" gatherings. Patients can thus find out how research works, and why it sometimes moves forward with giant strides, and sometimes with smaller steps. They will have the chance to raise all the questions they have about research, and about their disorders or diseases.

For this gathering, with its focus on neurological diseases and especially neurodegenerative diseases, the researchers will welcome you in order to talk about advances in research and the challenges of their work, and let you discover their laboratory and the technological platforms with which they work. This gathering is organised to encourage dialogue, discussion and questions.

Many researchers have been enlisted: nearly 100 researchers from 17 of Inserm's laboratories will open their doors in 11 French cities, with the participation of some forty research teams.

The 12 associations involved in this gathering have also been enlisted to be present at each site, and to discuss the involvement of patients in research.

Our slogan "Moving forward together" thus assume its full meaning.
