Inherent to the agreement between FENS and the Lundbeck Foundation, each year 40 slots with an approximately even distribution between the two annual brain conferences are reserved for Danish scientists. These slots will be distributed directly by the Foundation.
The morphology and complexity of neurons provides unique challenges for the maintenance and modification of the neuronal transcriptome and proteome in the cell body and at synapses. In this meeting, we will explore how neurons regulate RNA molecules and protein synthesis and how these mechanisms represent vulnerabilities for various neurological diseases.
Organised by FENS in collaboration with Lundbeck Foundation, awarder of The Brain Prize, these bi-annual conferences bring together outstanding researchers in key areas of contemporary neuroscience to discuss current concepts and define challenges for future research.
