The Annual NEALS Meeting is going VIRTUAL for 2020!

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic’s current trajectory, NEALS has made the difficult decision to transition the 2020 Annual NEALS Meeting into a fully virtual event, to be held online September 30th and October 1st.

NEALS members have been gathering since 1996 to share in research, clinical trials, and other updates in the field of ALS. For its 19th Annual Meeting, NEALS looks forward to welcoming NEALS members, foundation partners, company representatives, and ALS researchers to share exciting research updates and best practices. The virtual 2020 NEALS Meeting will ensure you won’t miss out on the latest in ALS research.

Highlights of this year’s virtual event include:

  • Platform presentations on the latest in ALS research
  • A special science symposium chaired by the NEALS Science Advisory Board
  • Industry Partner & Member Roundtable
  • 80's themed networking events and happy hour
  • Additional sessions, to be announced shortly with the full schedule of events

Attendees will be able to experience sessions in real time as they will be live streamed along with live Q&A. To maintain energy throughout this year's virtual meeting, we plan to intersperse fun 80's relevant content throughout the sessions and during the Happy Hour.
