Related NeuroImmune Interactions in Health and Disease
The emerging field of neuroimmunology is one of the most exciting and fastest moving areas in biomedical research. Communication between the brain and the immune system play critical roles in neural development, homeostasis and disease. This conference will bring together an interdisciplinary group of scientists to discuss these and other emerging topics in neuroimmunology, with emphasis on the mechanisms underlying neural-immune crosstalk in health and disease. A major goal is to cultivate cross-disciplinary research by bringing together cutting-edge researchers that represent the entire spectrum of the field.Read More
Related Neurodegenerative Diseases: Genes, Mechanisms and Therapeutics
This conference aims to provide an integrated discussion of the latest advances in research and therapeutic development for neurodegenerative diseases. This conference program will focus on the roles of genetic risk factors and their contributions to glial and neuronal health in the aging brain, the biophysical properties of protein misfolding and the propagation of disease-specific proteinopathy, the role of intracellular vesicular trafficking in disease pathogenesis, new insights into the diverse role of glia, innate immunity and microbiomes in neurodegeneration, and novel therapeutic approaches that specifically target each of the novel biological areas.Read More

Related Cognitive Aging Conference
The biennial Cognitive Aging Conference is the premier conference for presentation of research about aging and cognition based on experimental cognitive psychology, cognitive neuroscience of aging, human factors and ergonomics, and longitudinal studies of age-related cognitive change, its correlates, and determinants.
The next Cognitive Aging Conference will be held in Atlanta, Georgia in Spring 2022. See the Conference Description page for more information.Read More
Related Metabolism, Aging, Pathogenesis, and Stress in C. elegans
The 2022 C. elegans “Topics” Meeting “Metabolism, Aging, Pathogenesis, and Stress” (MAPS 2022), on campus at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, Memorial Union will host researchers studying fundamental questions regarding increasing health-span and reducing aging-associated decline.
Due to the continued uncertainty caused by COVID-19 we regret that we have decided to cancel the 2020 meeting. We look forward to being able to host the meeting July 14 – 17, 2022 in Madison, Wisconsin, SAVE THE DATE!Read More
