Therapeutic Targeting of Iron-Driven Neurodegeneration by Ferroptosis

Time: 1:00 pm
day: Day Two


  • Leveraging rare diseases, including Neurodegeneration with Brain Iron Accumulation (NBIA), point to iron dysregulation as a causal factor in the neurodegenerative disease
  • Understanding that ferroptosis is a cause of iron-driven cell death that targets multiple brain cell types
  • Utilizing ferroptosis inhibition as a key therapeutic node in rare diseases characterized by brain iron accumulation
