20th International Symposium on Signal Transduction at the Blood-Brain Barriers

The organizing committee warmly invites you to the “20th International Symposium on Signal Transduction at the Blood-Brain Barriers,” which will be held September 13–15, 2017 in Kraków, Poland.

The symposium program covers all areas of blood-brain barriers research and reflects the latest developments in neurodegenerative diseases, membrane receptors and transporters, transcytosis regulators, epigenetic and transcriptional regulators, metabolic and nutrition regulation, in vivo and in vitro brain barriers models as well as the role of tight junctions and glycocalyx in blood brain barrier permeability. In addition, signaling pathways implicated in the development of neurological diseases and brain tumors are addressed.

The symposium is intended to encourage interactions between basic science researchers and clinicians working in academia, universities, and industry. There will be presentations from eminent scientists and a significant part of oral presentations will be chosen from submitted abstracts. Younger scientists are strongly encouraged to participate and present their projects.

We hope to meet you all in Kraków for this anniversary Blood-Brain Barriers event!

2nd HBP Young Researchers Event: Integrating neuroscience data into models and simulations

The 2nd Young Researchers Event (YRE) 2017 is hosted by the Human Brain Project (HBP) and organised by young researchers within the HBP. It will take place in Geneva on 12-13 September and is immediately followed by the in-depth CodeJam on 13-15 September.

This year’s theme is integrating neuroscience data into models and simulations. Participants have the opportunity to learn about the Information & Communication Technology Infrastructure offered and developed by the HBP, and how to use it for their own research. They will further get the chance to meet other researchers with similar interests, work in small groups and get support on their projects from the HBP Platform experts.

European History of Neuroscience Online Projects - CALL FOR PROJECTS

The FENS History Committee has recently published a call for for 'European History of Neuroscience Projects'. These grants of up to EUR 1,500 support projects in which historical material such as films, photos, images or histological slides of prominent European neuroscientists or major developments in a particular area of brain research are presented online. 

On the occasion of the 20th anniversary of FENS in 2018, the history committee of FENS would like to encourage the submission of projects that are specifically focused on the development of neuroscience at a national level (through major scientific figures or events). Successfully funded projects will be invited to present their project in a poster at the History Corner during the FENS Forum 2018 in Berlin.

For more information about the activities of the FENS History committee including the history online projects archive, please follow this link to the FENS website.

Deadline for submission is 2 October 2017.
