On 22-24 May the Neurodegenerative Disease research group of the Helmholtz-Alberta Initiative (HAI-NDR) hosted a workshop on Prion strains: Structure, tropism and host response at the Banff Conference Centre (Banff, Alberta).

The conference was an opportunity for over 20 researchers from both institutions – German Centre for Neurodegenerative Diseases (DZNE) and the University of Alberta, to showcase their research. The last day of the conference was used for a discussion on how to further develop and strengthen the existing collaboration through working on common research topics, but also through student exchange and adoption of novel laboratory procedures developed in participating laboratories.
