On behalf of the Organizational Committee of the “Neuropathology. Neurogenetics 2019” scientific conference, which is taking place on November 15th, 2019 in the Mossakowski Medical Research Center at the Polish Academy of Sciences in Warsaw, we would like to invite you to participate in this event.

The aim of the conference is the comprehensive presentation of molecular research and the role of neuropathology in the aspect of contemporary diagnosis of nervous system diseases, with particular focus on neoplastic, neurodegenerative and demyelinating processes as well as neuromuscular disorders.Neurogenetics is a dynamically developing field of study that involves researching the molecular basis of pathological processes within the nervous system and isolating genetically determined diseases. The possibilities emerging from the application of more accurate diagnostic tests allow the identification of new, often very rare disease entities, yet at the same time bringing along difficulties with the interpretation of results.

The conference is addressed to neuropathologists, geneticists, neurologists and pathologists as well as molecular biologists, psychiatrists and pediatricians.

June 7th 2019 University of Warmia and Mazury in Olsztyn.

The conference entitled "Stem Cells: Therapeutic Outlook for Central Nervous System Disorders" is addressed to everyone, who is interested in the latest achievements in the field of stem cells application in treatment of nervous system diseases.

Planned lecture sessions and panel discussions will allow to present the results of research both at the preclinical and clinical stage, and exchange of opinions between scientists and physicians, including the standards of stem cells preparation and non-invasive methods of transplantation.

Among latest investigations, direct intraparenchymal and intravenous transplantation of stem cells and its influence on the transplanted cells survival, migration and differentiation will be presented. Moreover, the mechanisms underlying vascular dysfunctions in neurodegeneration, the role of miRNA in mesenchymal stem cell immunoregulatory function and neurogenesis will be discussed. The most recent achievements in the preclinical field such as intrathecal repeated application of hMSC and/or muscle injection and its effect on programmed cell death,  will be presented.

We believe, that the Conference provides an opportunity to present the results of preclinical and clinical studies, exchange views, ideas and technologies between excellent scientists from Polish and European leading research and medical centres.

Invited speakers:

  • Prof. Pavla Jendelova, Charles University in Prague, Czech Republic
  • Prof. Dinko Mitrecic, University of Zagreb, Croatia
  • Prof. Edgaras Stankevicius, Lithuanian University of Health Sciences, Kaunas, Lithuania
  • Dr Sebastian Lewandowski, Karolinska Institutet, Solna, Sweden
  • Prof. Bogusław Machaliński, Pomeranian Medical University in Szczecin, Poland
  • Prof. Marcin Majka, Jagiellonian University, Cracow, Poland
  • Prof. Krzysztof Selmaj, Department of Neurology, School of Medicine, University of Warmia and Mazury in Olsztyn
  • Dr hab. n. med. Anna Sarnowska, Department of Stem Cell Bioengineering, Mossakowski Medical Research Centre, Polish Academy of Sciences

Polish Neuroscience Society is organizer of the biennial international conferences focused on a bright topic spectrum of the modern neurobiology.
14th International Congress of the Polish Neuroscience Society” will be held this year in Katowice from 28th to 30th August.

During the conference researchers from the leading scientific centers will present 6 plenary lectures:

  1. Prof. Magdalena Götz, Helmholtz Zentrum München, German Research Center for Environmental Health, Munich, Germany
    “From neurogenesis to neural repair”
  2. Prof. Hannah Monyer, German Cancer Research Center, Heidelberg, Germany
    “GABAergic neurons and their role in the coordination of intra- and interareal neuronal activity”
  3. Prof. Hartmut Wekerle, Max Planck Institute (MPI) of Neurobiology, Martinsried, Germany
    “Multiple sclerosis - Formation of a brain autoimmune disease”
  4. Prof. Marcello Rosa, Biomedicine Discovery Institute and Department of Physiology, Monash University, Melbourne, Australia
    “Plasticity of the primate visual pathway following lesions in early and mature life”
  5. 5. Prof. Gernot Riedel, The Institute of Medical Sciences, University of Aberdeen, King's College, Aberdeen, U K
    “Preclinical development of treatments for tauopathies: translation to clinic and back”
  6. Prof. Graham Sheridan, School of Pharmacy and Biomolecular Science, Centre for Stress and Age-Related Disease
    “Mechanobiology of the brain in health and disease”

The most actual results of research will be also presented as 12 scientific symposia focused on various topics on neuroscience. The symposia aim to gather scientists from related field of neurobiology giving opportunity for data presentation and rise for discussion.

Organizers have planned also two poster sessions for about 200 participants each. This mode of data presentation gives excellent opportunity for direct contacts among researchers, data discussion and exchange of experience. It is also a platform for launching of scientific collaboration among scientists from various research institutes.

Abstracts of all scientific contributions presented during the conference will be published in Acta Neurobiologiae Experimentalis.
