Molecular Neurodegeneration: Novel Systems and Emerging Concepts

The 4th International Conference on Molecular Neurodegeneration (ICMN2016), held in Seoul, Republic of Korea, May 11-13 2016, gathered more than 300 participants from all over the world. In 14 scientific sessions including oral and poster presentations as well as panel discussions scientific progress under the theme ‘Novel Systems and Emerging Concepts’ was discussed. 

In this article collection, published by Molecular Neurodegeneration, the state-of-the-art scientific developments presented during the meeting are reviewed.
