As the Covid pandemic led to the cancellation or postponement of almost all face to face A-T meetings and conferences in 2021, Action for A-T staged a virtual event to highlight some of the current A-T research projects which are taking place around the world. Key stakeholders from the global A-T community provided an easy to understand, concise overview of their current projects as well as answering questions.

The webinar took place on the 29th March 2021 and was hosted by Broadcaster, Journalist and Patron, Naga Munchetty and chair of  the Research Advisory Committee, Dr Mark Toms. There were six presentations and the line up of speakers and their presentation topics are listed below Click on any presentation title to view the individual content.
