2013 Second International CADASIL Workshop: CADASIL 20 years later, what next?

It was in 1993 that Professors Marie Germaine Bousser and Elisabeth Tournier-Lasserve first identified a new disease, CADASIL, after an extensive study of 57 adult members of a French family.  Within three more years, the responsible gene (Notch 3) was identified.  During the past twenty years, more than 1,000 CADASIL families have been identified worldwide and more than 1,000 scientific articles have been published. To celebrate the 20th anniversary of CADASIL, a workshop was held September 19-20 2013 in Paris, France at the Fondation Singer Polignac in Paris.  Specialists Specialists (of CADASIL, of other small artery diseases of the brain, of Notch 3, and of neurovascular coupling) from around the world participated in an intense scientific workshop to review the past twenty years and discuss the future of CADASIL research.  During opening remarks, Professor Bousser honored and recognized the members of the CADASIL French Association (President Jean-Luc Airiau and Secretary Chantal Neau) for attending the scientific workshop as well CADASIL Together We Have Hope (Billie Duncan-Smith, Board Director & President).  Their symbolic presence was meaningful as both organizations were there in CADASIL’s infancy.   http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x1521ga_marie-germaine-bousser-opening-speech_tech

This stellar international workshop was made possible through the generosity of partnerships with:  Assistance Publique – Hôpitaux de Paris;  Hôpitaux Universitaires Lariboisière, Fernand-Widal; Centre Hospitalier Sainte Anne; DHU NeuroVasc Sorbonne Paris-Cité; Institut national de la santé et de la recherche médicale (INSERM); Université Paris Descartes; Sorbonne Paris-Cité; Paris Diderot, Votre Université; Fondation Leducq; and Fondation Singer-Polignac.  The American Leducq Foundation granted funds in 2012 to establish a transatlantic network that is devoted to research on small vessel diseases of the brain. This network has boosted the studies on CADASIL, international collaborations, and assisted in organizing this scientific workshop for medical professionals. http://fondationleducq.org/nivel2.aspx?idsec=1333

The CADASIL French Association and CADASIL Together We Have Hope sincerely appreciate the efforts of all medical professionals worldwide who are working to find a treatment or cure for CADASIL.  A special thank you is extended to those who presented sessions or moderated discussions at this spectacular workshop.
