The International Congress “Non-Clinical Models for Neurodegenerative Diseases” (21–24 June, 2017, in Laguna Azul Hotel, in Varadero, Cuba) together with cutting-edge information on molecular mechanisms and non-clinical models, will cover a sequence that goes from basic science to clinical proof of concept. The workshop on challenges and requirements for translational medicine (bench to bedside) completes the aim of beginning the walk within a multidisciplinary environment as a way of reducing the “valley of death” in neurodegenerative diseases.
• Identifying cutting edge advances in molecular mechanisms of neurodegeneration and development of non-clinical models for these diseases
• Promoting the exchange of experiences, presentation and discussion of results from basic research to clinical proof of concept.
• Contributing to incorporate harmonized criteria for Laboratory Animal Science, Animal Welfare and Quality Assurance in the care and use of experimental animals, experimental design and interpretation of results.
• Promoting networking and collaborative projects between Cuba and other countries

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Behavioral Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1000 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
