Myelin Gordon Research Conference - Italy

External Event - 17th to 22nd May 2020

The critical importance of myelin for proper nervous system function is underscored by the devastating symptoms in diseases in which it is disrupted, including multiple sclerosis, leukodystrophies, and peripheral neuropathies that affect millions of individuals worldwide. It is also becoming ever clearer that myelination represents a novel mechanism modulating neural plasticity, and myelinating glia represent a major resource for the development of novel therapeutics to treat diseases of the nervous system and to promote repair following trauma.

The 2020 Myelin GRC will be held in conjunction with the critically important Myelin Gordon Research Seminar (GRS), which focuses on trainees in the field. The goal of these meetings is to provide an active forum for exchange of results in the rapidly advancing field of myelin biology in health and disease. The 2020 Myelin GRC will bring together basic scientists at all career stages as well as translational and clinical investigators to explore and highlight the most recent and important advances in myelin biology and medicine. The scientific program was designed to highlight new discoveries in all aspects of myelin biology, from cell biology and genetics to imaging to remyelination in humans.

Applications for this meeting must be submitted by April 19, 2020. Please apply early, as some meetings become oversubscribed (full) before this deadline. If the meeting is oversubscribed, it will be stated here. Note: Applications for oversubscribed meetings will only be considered by the conference chair if more seats become available due to cancellations.
