Cognition Therapeutics to Participate in Panel during the BIO CEO & Investor Conference on the Development of Neurodegenerative Therapeutics
Anthony Caggiano, M.D., Ph.D., Participating on February 15th Panel: “Exploring the Possibilities of Developing Neurodegenerative Therapeutics”
PURCHASE, N.Y., Feb. 08, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cognition Therapeutics, Inc. (Nasdaq: CGTX), a clinical-stage neuroscience company developing drugs that treat age-related degenerative diseases, today announced that Anthony Caggiano, M.D., Ph.D., chief medical officer and head of R&D, will participate in a panel discussion during the annual BIO CEO & Investor Conference, entitled, “Exploring the Possibilities of Developing Neurodegenerative Therapeutics.” Joining Dr. Caggiano in the discussion will be representatives from companies, academic institutions and investment funds with stakes in neuroscience research and innovation. Both Dr. Caggiano and Lisa Ricciardi, Cognition Therapeutics’ president and CEO, will be available for one-on-one meetings during the conference.
The substantial global burden of neurological diseases was a driving factor in almost $4 billion dollars of neuroscience partnerships in 2020, where neurodegenerative programs comprise the majority. In a field that has seen some retrenching, there is renewed excitement due to recent developments, including FDA’s commitment to the therapeutic area in 2020 through its reorganization of the Office of New Drugs to include an Office of Neuroscience. This panel brings together investors, scientists, and companies exploring the possibilities of neurodegeneration therapies.
Dr. Caggiano added, “We have seen a resurgence of interest in novel approaches targeting the biological pathways implicated in neurological diseases, which may prove to be important options for patients. I look forward to discussing the potential role of our sigma-2 (σ-2) receptor modulators in this evolving landscape on February 15th.”
Details of the panel discussion are as follows:
|Panel:||Exploring the Possibilities of Developing Neurodegenerative Therapeutics|

About Cognition Therapeutics:
Cognition Therapeutics, Inc. is a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company engaged in the discovery and development of innovative, small molecule therapeutics targeting age-related degenerative diseases and disorders of the central nervous system, or CNS, and retina. Our goal is to develop disease modifying treatments for patients with these degenerative disorders by initially leveraging our expertise in the sigma-2 (σ-2) receptor, which is expressed by multiple cell types, including neuronal synapses, and acts as a key regulator of cellular damage commonly associated with certain age-related degenerative diseases of the CNS and retina. We believe that targeting the σ-2 receptor complex represents a mechanism that is functionally distinct from other current approaches in clinical development for the treatment of degenerative diseases.
