Ataxia Investigators Meetings

Launched in 2005, NAF’s biennial Ataxia Investigators Meeting (AIM) brings together world-leading Ataxia clinicians and scientists who are working to accelerate the pace of Ataxia research, better understand the disease, and develop therapies.

Due to the novel coronavirus COVID-19, NAF made the difficult, but necessary, decision to cancel the March 2020 Ataxia Investigators Meeting (AIM) and pivoted to a virtual format. 

The virtual AIM will take place May 24-27, 2021.

The AIM agenda and program that was planned will be followed, as much as possible.
