About the Workshop

We cordially invite you to join the 3rd EMBO Workshop on Stroke-Immunology which will take place at the Hohenkammer Castle near Munich between September 18th – 21st 2023.

The aim of this EMBO Workshop is to provide a platform for experts in the stroke-immunology field to meet with leading scientists from related research areas, including immunology, neuroscience, and take advantage of advanced research tools. This will provide a unique environment for scientists at all career levels to access recent advances in this growing area of research, to reinforce existing collaborations and generate new ones.

This EMBO Workshop will cover key topics in brain-immune interactions in the context of stroke and neurodegeneration. The program includes a diverse range of invited speakers as well as speakers selected from submitted abstracts, who will present recent and unpublished research. The format prioritizes discussion and informal interactions among scientists of all career levels.

Participation at this EMBO Workshop requires registration via this website. Please visit our homepage to learn about updates. We look forward to welcoming you all at the conference in this truly exciting time for stroke-immunology!

With warmest regards,
Corinne Benakis, Arthur Liesz and Adam Denes

About the Area

Munich is characterized by centuries-old buildings and numerous museums. The Bavarian capital is known for the annual Oktoberfest and its beer halls, including the Hofbräuhaus, which opened in 1589. The Oktoberfest typically attracts over six million visitors over its three-week run starting this year on Sept. 16. In the old town, the city center at the well-known Marienplatz there are landmarks such as the Neo-Gothic New Town Hall, whose popular carillon plays melodies and stories from the 16th century.

The conference venue “Schloss Hohenkammer”, about 40km away from the city center, is literally sit­u­ated in the middle of a cul­tural land­scape. An excursion to Scheyern, home of the im­pres­sive Benedictine monastery and former seat of the Bavarian royal family, is an apparent possibility as one to Freising or the cultural and brewery site of Weihenstephan.
