Plenary Meeting EHDN2021


Every second year in September EHDN hosts one of the world’s largest conferences dedicated solely to Huntington’s disease. The 2021 EHDN plenary meeting takes place September 10th – 12th in the Bologna Congress Center and is organised in conjunction with the European Huntington Association (EHA) meeting. The scientific programme includes recent advances in both basic and clinical HD research and attendees have the opportunity to meet experts in the field of HD studies in more informal settings. All EHDN plenary sessions are open to clinicians, scientists, EHA delegates and members of families affected by HD. For more information about this year’s meeting please read here.
