Neurofilaments as a biomarker
Workshop, 16 November 2018
On Friday 16 November 2018, over 50 speakers and delegates attended a workshop convened by Professor Paul Matthews (Imperial College London) and Professor Henrik Zetterberg (UCL) at 58 Prince's Gate, South Kensington, London.
The workshop, sponsored by Biogen, was a huge success with excellent engagement and discussion throughout the day.

A huge thank you to all involved in the workshop. We hope that the discussions continue. If you are keen to get involved or join in the conversation, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Finally, the organisers would like to thank Nicolas Barthelemy who, despite his best efforts, was unable to attend the meeting in person due to a plane situation beyond his control (see the photo for a clue as to what this was) but we are grateful that he was able to join us to give his presentation via a last minute webinar!
