AGI YII webinar series

In the first webinar series of the Ataxia Global Young Investigator Initiative, each AGI Working Group will present an introduction into their topic.

Target audience: young investigators in the ataxia field, who we hope to give a head start in their career by introducing important aspects of various research topics. Of course, anyone who is interested is welcome to attend!

Recording: all webinars will be recorded and shared with the members of the Ataxia Global Initiative. However, please consider that in the recorded webinar some features are missing and thus the live experience of these educational events is highly recommended.
