2022 Tiantan Symposium for Movement Disorders

The ultimate goal of medical research is to improve the quality of life of patients. Movement disorders, such as Parkinson's disease, multiple system atrophy, Huntington disease, ataxia, etc, are clinical syndromes with either an excess of movement or a paucity of voluntary and involuntary movements, that are complex conditions impacting all components of patients' health-related quality of life.
This workshop aims to identify unmet clinical needs of patients with movement disorders, and potential solutions or therapies to advance the field, so as to provide optimal clinical practice and care for patients with movement disorders. This workshop will invite distinguished experts in the field, provide invaluable networking opportunities and inspiring discussions on the current hot topics of movement disorders, so as to advance the education and research on movement disorders in China.
We are pleased to invite you to join us for the 2022 Tiantan Symposium for Movement Disorders of “Tackle the Unmet Clinical Needs” & China-America International Forum for Brain Science on July 9 to achieve the aims of the program: Exchange, Comprehend, and Advance
