CYTOSKELETAL PROTEINS AND NEURODEGENERATIVE
DISEASE


                        ROBINSON COLLEGE, CAMBRIDGE, U.K.
                                August 5-10, 1995



Organizers: Lester Binder, Molecular Geriatrics Corporation, Lake Bluff, 
IL
            Michel Goedert, Medical Research Council, Cambridge, U.K.


      The fourth joint American Society for Cell Biology/European 
Molecular
Biology
Organization conference will examine the contributions of cytoskeletal
abnormalities to
neurodegenerative disease.  The format is designed to acquaint members of 
the
basic
science community with the involvement of specific proteins in disease
processes and to
afford clinical scientists the benefit of the latest cell and molecular
biological findings
regarding the proteins of interest.  The diseases covered will include
Alzheimer's
Disease, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, Stroke, Lewy Body Disease, Prion
Protein
Diseases, Multiple System Atrophy and Inclusion Body Myositis.  

      The biology and pathology of microtubule and intermediate filament
proteins in
normal and degenerating nervous systems will constitute major foci of
presentations
and discussions.  Invited presentations will be augmented by poster 
sessions
providing
more detailed coverage of individual topics.  Meeting attendance will be
limited to 250
participants.

      For a meeting application and call for abstracts contact Dorothy 
Doyle,
American Society for Cell Biology, 9650 Rockville Pike, Bethesda MD 
20814.
Tel: 301-530-7153; Fax: 301-530-7139; e-mail: ddoyle at ascb.faseb.org.
