Prion 2017 held in Edinburgh from 23 – 26th May

We thank Professor Richard Knight and Professor Jean Manson for the opportunity given to the CJD International Support Alliance (CJDISA) to present to the scientific audience on behalf of the patients, families and those at risk of CJD and other prion diseases. Being able to bring the voices and faces of those affected around the world to the 350 researchers and experts attending has become an important part of this annual prion scientific conference.

We would like to thank the many personally affected who contributed to this presentation and acknowledge those whose dedication and passion has led to the development of 15 member associations covering 14 countries who offer support and assistance to all affected by prion disease around the world.

The CJDISA presentation is now posted on the CJDISA website and we will have lay summaries of the scientific presentations that members of our Friends and Advisors have kindly offered to provide to help families to understand the current prion research happening around the world.
