This year, the project partners of the Tom Wahlig Foundation and treatHSP invite you to a joint meeting, which will take place in early December in Tübingen.
Even more than in the previous two years, this time we will bundle our topics and focal points of research work in order to jointly present the current state of HSP research. Renowned international experts will have a unique forum to exchange and discuss their research approaches, projects and results.
Numerous young scientists who have already come into contact with hereditary spastic paraplegia through their work and are interested in furthering their education and expanding their network in this field of research will present a poster.
A TWS poster prize of 300 € will be awarded to the three best posters.
The meeting will take place in the WESTSPITZE Tübingen, directly east of the Blaue Brücke (Eisenbahnstraße 1, 72072 Tübingen, access via Hanna-Bernheim-Strasse 2.
On the evening of December 1, we invite you to dine together at the Liquid Kelter restaurant (Schmiedtorstrasse 17, 72070 Tübingen).
Room allotments are no longer available. Who still wants to register, writes an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
