Fondazione Prada Set to Host the “2023 Joint Pre-ECTRIMS Course” with a Focus on Multiple Sclerosis

October 10, 2023

In collaboration with Med-Ex Learning and the European Charcot Foundation (ECF), Fondazione Prada is on the cusp of hosting the “2023 Joint Pre-ECTRIMS Course” as part of the expansive “Human Brains” neuroscience project.

Venue and Audience

Set against the architectural marvel of Fondazione Prada's Milan venue, this initiative is tailored for young neurologists with a zest for diving deep into Multiple Sclerosis. It also acts as a prelude to the grand “MSMilan2023: 9th Joint ECTRIMS-ACTRIMS Meeting” – a monumental event for the European Committee for Treatment and Research in Multiple Sclerosis (ECTRIMS) and its American counterpart, ACTRIMS.

Course Highlights

The “2023 Joint Pre-ECTRIMS Course” is a masterclass on the recent advancements in Multiple Sclerosis research. Attendees can anticipate a comprehensive breakdown of the disease's genesis, its mechanisms, cutting-edge therapies, and treatment outcomes. Controversial topics such as disease progression, the role of age and cognitive function, and the integration of technologies like artificial intelligence will not be left untouched.

Interactive Opportunities

The event peaks with a roundtable dialogue emphasizing the increased role of observational studies in evaluating the pros and cons of current treatments. Participants can engage with the global vanguards of Multiple Sclerosis research. For global enthusiasts and those unable to attend in person, Fondazione Prada offers a live streaming alternative.

Human Brains: A Deeper Dive

The 'Human Brains' project, inaugurated in 2018, stands as a testament to Fondazione Prada's dedication to unraveling the intricacies of the human brain. Under the guidance of the respected Professor Giancarlo Comi from Vita-Salute San Raffaele University of Milan, this initiative has provided crucial insights into neurodegenerative diseases.

Looking Ahead: Longevity and Beyond

Come March 2024, the spotlight will shift to Longevity at Fondazione Prada. A focus will be laid on the repercussions of population aging, its ties with neurodegenerative conditions, and the broader societal and economic impacts.

A Call to Collective Action

In the ongoing battle against the escalating challenge of neurodegenerative diseases, addressing modifiable risk factors remains of utmost importance. With a proactive vision for Autumn 2024, Fondazione Prada plans to host an international summit, fostering synergistic discussions aimed at formulating concrete strategies to counter these ailments.

To chronicle the achievements and milestones of the 'Human Brains' initiative, Fondazione Prada is set to unveil a detailed publication this November, encapsulating the key insights from their previous undertakings. Discover more at
