About the Workshop
Dissecting the building elements of the brain and more in general of the nervous system is the fundamental step to further understand the function of this complex tissue and its defects in disease. Recent advances in neural development are astonishing, providing extraordinary new insights into the underlying molecular and cellular mechanisms. These advances involve the use of multiple models and include research in neural stem cells, patterning, neuronal morphogenesis, synaptogenesis, circuit formation, glial-neuronal interactions. Importantly, many data support interconnection between developmental processes and mechanisms underlying neurodegeneration particularly those related to neuro-immune function, synaptic plasticity or proteostasis.
The aim of this EMBO workshop is to provide a platform for discussion between the developmental and neurodegenerative fields, and to build ties and foster collaborations.
We believe this meeting is a great opportunity for global and local scientists to work together. Looking forward to seeing you in Taipei.
About EMBO Courses and Workshops
EMBO Courses and Workshops are selected for their excellent scientific quality and timeliness, provision of good networking activities for all participants and speaker gender diversity (at least 40% of speakers must be female).
Organisers are encouraged to implement measures to make the meeting environmentally more sustainable.
