“I look forward to fruitful discussions that will carry our understanding of neuroprotection and neurorepair to a higher level. I am sure that ISN&N is one the best venues to achieve this goal. I am particularly excited for inclusion of the subject of microcirculation to the meeting because I believe that microcirculatory protection is essential for successful neuroportection in clinical practice.”

“The International Symposium on Neuroprotection and Neurorepair is an exciting, cutting-edge conference that brings together CNS researchers from multiple disciplines. The talks are of the highest caliber and opportunities are abundant for networking, learning and developing new collaborations. I thoroughly enjoyed this meeting in Leipzig 2 years ago and look forward to participating again this year.”

“The International Symposium for Neuroprotection and Neurorepair provides an excellent way to meet all the international experts in neuroprotection in a nice atmosphere. I hope to raise interest for the emerging functional Ultrasound (fUS) imaging modality to people from this field and to initiate fruitful discussions and collaborations with worldwide researchers.”

Mickael Tanter
ESPCI Paris, Institut Langevin

“I look forward to exciting talks and discussions at this prestigious symposium.”

“The 10th Neuroprotection and Neurorepair Symposium in Dresden provides THE international forum presenting recent advances in research on cerebral ischemia, brain hemorrhage and brain trauma. I am really looking forward to meet and discuss hot topics on mechanisms of neuronal damage, as well as current experimental and clinical approaches with the leaders in the field.”

Carsten Culmsee
Center for Mind, Brain and Behavior – CMBB

“The Neuroprotection and Neurorepair Symposium has become a landmark meeting for the brain injury and repair community worldwide, with a superb scientific program and enjoyable social events. I always learn a lot, and look forward to attending the 10th edition this year.”

“We will change the paradigm from neuroprotection to neuroregeneration by therapeutic angiogenesis.”

Akihiko Taguchi
Institute of Biomedical Research and Innovation

“I am sure that once again I will not be disappointed! The upcoming 10th edition of ISN&N is going to be the usual excellent opportunity for getting new perspectives and new ideas. This conference has the perfect dimension – not too large, not too small – just what needed for fruitful interactions. Top neuroscientists will get together to share their ideas to listen to yours. I strongly recommend attending this exciting conference!”

Maria-Grazia De Simoni

“I’m looking forward to be part of the 10th ISN&N this year in Radebeul.”

Gerlinde Metz
Canadian Centre for Behavioural Neuroscience

“This meeting will be the opportunity for us to discuss the most recent advances in molecular MRI of brain endothelial activation.”

Denis Vivien
Caen Medical School -University Caen-Normandie

“It will provide a forum to share our technological developments in imaging and foster new discussions for novel applications of oxygen imaging.”

Frédéric Lesage
École Polytechnique Montréal

“This meeting is a great opportunity to meet with outstanding researchers and discuss our recent findings. Neuroprotection and neurorepair are common goals that we all have no matter which CNS disorder we are studying. There is no doubt that collaborations will emerge from this symposium.”

Axel Montagne
Keck School of Medicine at USC
(United States)

“ISN&N in Leipzig two years ago was my first time attending this conference. I was so excited to see such a complementary spread of expertise ranging from acute ischemic stroke through Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias including vascular contributions to cognitive impairment and dementia (VCID). This was a unique meeting that provided lots of education, networking, and collaborative opportunities and it is now a regular on my conference calendar.”

Dear Colleagues and Friends,

We cordially invite you to join us for the 10th International Symposium on Neuroprotection and Neurorepair (ISN&N), which will take place from October 09 to October 11, 2018.

The anniversary ISN&N meeting will take place in the vineyards of Radebeul, a quaint town at the gates of the baroque City of Dresden. Dresden has been the residence of the Saxon kings for centuries, and has a strong and rich cultural and academic history. Situated at the banks of the Elbe river, Dresden is considered one of Germany’s nicest and prosperous cities.

In continuation of the successful past meetings with up to 400 participants, the scientific focus of the 10th ISN&N will be on cerebral ischemia and brain hemorrhage, neurotrauma, neurodegeneration as well as related disciplines. 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.

The 10th ISN&N will provide a strong platform for contributions from the audience. Minisymposia organized by participants and ample oral presentation from delegates will accompany the key note presentations by outstanding international speakers. The 10th ISN&N will also feature ample time for discussions and scientific exchange.

Please regularly browse our homepage or join our newsletter to learn about the latest and updates. We do look forward to welcome you in Dresden (Radebeul)!

With warmest regards,

Johannes Boltze, MD, PhD
Chair of the Organizational Committee
