Uniting Biotech & Pharma to Fuel the Next Wave of Neurodegenerative Drug Discovery, Translation & Clinical Progress

Thank you to our speakers, sponsors, and delegates who joined us at the 12th Alzheimer’s & Parkinson’s Drug Development Summit! If you are interested in the 2025 event, please get in touch at info@hansonwade.com

After a 17-year hiatus in drug approvals for neurodegeneration, disease-modifying drugs for AD have finally broken the ice. With Lecanemab’s clinically proven 30% reduction in cognitive decline receiving the green light from the FDA & PMDA and Eli Lilly’s Donanemab hot on their heels for approval, 58 new trials entering the pipeline this year, and the alpha-synuclein self-seeding assay changing the game for PD drug development.

The 12th Alzheimer’s & Parkinson’s Drug Development Summit is indisputably the ultimate industry-focused meeting dedicated to sharing the hottest unpublished AD & PD research from senior biopharma KOLs you won’t hear anywhere else, with deep-dive content all the way from early discovery through to late phase trials and approvals.

This April, join 150+ senior industry leaders across discovery, preclinical, biomarker, translational, clinical, and commercial this year from Eli Lilly, Biogen, Eisai, Abbvie, Merck, Michael J. Fox Foundation, Acumen, Vigil Neuroscience, and many more….
