Welcome Note

Dear colleagues and friends,

We cordially invite you to join us for the 11th International Symposium on Neuroprotection and Neurorepair (ISN&N), which will take place from 5 October to 7 October 2020. We are delighted to announce that the 11th ISN&N will join with the 18th International Conference on Brain Edema and Cellular Injury. This combination will further augment the scientific content of our meeting and bring together researchers form related disciplines.

We chose a special location for the 2020 ISN&N meeting. We will meet in Germany’s most vibrant city and capital, Berlin, which has been the major hotspot in German Neuroscience for decades. Berlin is an exceptional location with a tremendous spectrum of activities in science, arts, and culture, unique pieces of historical and contemporary architecture, and a very interesting history. Importantly, some of the most important advances in early neuroscience were made by colleagues from the Charité, Europe’s largest hospital and Medical school.

We will meet and discuss at the Harnack House, a historical science complex known as the “meeting point of the Nobel Prize laureates”, and operated by the famous German Max-Planck Society. This impressive building features a beautiful garden, numerous historical meeting rooms and lecture halls, as well as unique insights in its history, which is a rich and turbulent as the history of Berlin.

In continuation of the successful past meetings, the scientific focus of the 2020 meeting  will be on cerebral ischemia and brain hemorrhage, neurotrauma, neurodegeneration as well as related disciplines including cell biology and imaging. Together, we will learn about and discuss the most recent and exciting findings from fundamental and translational neuroscience, as well as diagnostic and therapeutic developments from the clinics.

The 2020 ISN&N will again provide a strong platform for contributions from the audience. We will offer space mini-symposia organized by participants, as well as additional slots for oral presentations from delegates, all of which will accompany keynote presentations by outstanding international speakers. In the tradition of former meetings, we will also feature ample time for discussions and scientific exchange while and the same time exploring new opportunities such as ePosters and interactive oral presentations.

We are currently setting up an exciting program for you, which will soon become available online!
