About the Workshop

This meeting brings together researchers working on molecular processes in the nervous system. It aims to promote collaboration between experts from the structural, biophysical and 'in vivo' communities. The talks will be on recent breakthroughs in structural biology, super-resolution imaging and advanced biological models in neurobiology. We have designed the programme to promote discussion of cutting-edge methods and results. The sessions include aspects of cellular navigation, wiring, synapse biology, neurovascular processes and highlight progress in understanding associated diseases. Given its cross-disciplinary nature, this EMBO Workshop presents a broad overview of the field, excellent opportunities for discussion, and an insight into the latest technologies. It provides a space for learning, for forging new collaborations, and for presenting ideas that will determine the future of molecular neurobiology.
