Neural Stem Cells

November 5-6, 2014

German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ), Heidelberg

In a tissue with very little or non regenerative capacity such as the adult brain, the existence of stem cells was neglected for many years. We now know that neural stem cells are present in several regions of the adult brain and able to self-renew and generate a subset of terminally-differentiated neural cells including neurons and glia. Yet, their contribution to modulating brain function and brain repair is still subject of intensive studies. Over the past few years, exciting data from labs around the world have contributed to our understanding of  the mechanisms involved in the generation of the cellular subtypes building the brain, the modulation of brain function by newborn cells and the involvement of stem cells in homeostasis and repair.

The satellite symposium on neural stem cells aims at discussing the latest advances on this exciting field. The organizers are proud to present a program that covers important aspects of neural stem cell biology, such as:

  • How neural stem cells build the complex diversity of the cortex
  • Adult neural stem cells in homeostasis and disease
  • Neural stem cell epigenetics

The symposium is jointly organized by the BMBF-funded independent groups in neuroscience and the German stem cell network and will be hosted by the DKFZ in Heidelberg from November 5 – 6, 2014. We look forward to a highly interactive meeting sparked by a panel of internationally renowned speakers. They will discuss their latest data with an audience of about 350 students, scientists and clinicians. A poster session will further foster the scientific exchange. In addition, three of the submitted abstracts will be chosen for a short oral presentation. We are looking forward to discussing in this symposium the most recent advances of leading labs in the field from inside and outside Germany.

To register please contact Dr. Susanne Kleber Registration is free of charge for participants of the GSCN International Annual Conference. Registration fee for scientists who only attend the Joint Satellite Symposium on Neural Stem Cells is 50€ and will be refunded to students and postdocs at the meeting.
