10th Anniversary of the Brains for Brain Foundation


10th Anniversary of the Brains for Brain Foundation


SAVE-THE-DATE-10th-b4b3The Brains for Brain Foundation, an EBC member organisation, is organising a meeting for its 10th anniversary which will take place on 16th – 19th March 2016 in Madrid, Spain.

The programme will contain scientific and strategic sessions in which we will discuss:

1. Research achievements in the field of neurodegenerative diseases, in particular lysosomal storage disorders (LSDs) at clinical and basic science level and in the field of Blood Brain Barrier;
2. New recent advances on natural history and pathophysiology of LSDs;
3. Factors which control the entry into the brain of medicines and other therapeutic agents which may be helpful in treating central nervous system disease;
4. How B4B and InNerMeD partners might collaborate with the European Union to stimulate interest on research in rare diseases;
5. The role of the industries in driving innovation for new therapeutic approaches for true unmet needs.

Moreover, this year the programme includes a Plenary Session to mark the retirement of David Begley. This special session will reflect David’s major scientific contributions, and will consist of a mix of review lectures and contributions on new developments on Blood Brain Barrier and the delivery of therapeutics to the brain.
