    This session will highlight new approaches in CNS-targeted therapeutics. These approaches to identify and develop therapies able to reach the CNS and address specific genetic perturbations are being pioneered in rare disease, and require disciplined approaches to study designs and execution.
    Learning Objective : Design studies for advanced treatment modalities, with focus on CNS therapeutics. Identify and address hurdles in pre-clinical evaluation, identification of appropriate patients, and administration of treatments crossing or bypassing the blood brain barrier: Describe target engagement and biologic impact.
