International Symposium on Neural Regeneration
Durham, NC
$15,000


The International Symposium on Neural Regeneration focuses on recent progress in the field of neural regeneration, with a special emphasis on novel research topics. The target audience of the symposium is a mixture of faculty, physicians, students, pharmacologists and laboratory staff brought together in a forum to discuss strategies for discovering methods of recovery from injury or dysfunction of the nervous system.  One goal of the symposium is to present current work in neural regeneration. Secondly, the symposium is aimed at fostering an atmosphere that is both stimulating and conducive to a free interchange of ideas among investigators and students. 

To the spinal cord research community, the significance of the meeting is that it provides a format for both formal and informal exchanges of ideas on research in neural regeneration. Much collaboration has started at this meeting. For students, it is a chance to interact directly with some of the leading scientists in the field. For individuals with spinal cord dysfunction, meetings like this encourage new ideas, new research approaches, new collaborations and new projects, the products of which bring the possibility of functional recovery ever closer to realization.
