IV Symposium da Rede Glial Portuguesa – Evento Satélite do XVI Congresso da Sociedade Portuguesa de Neurociências

Dora Brites within the group “Neuron Glia Biology in Health and Disease” of the Research Institute for Medicines (iMed.ULisboa) of the Faculty of Pharmacy of the Universidade de Lisboa

Faculty of Pharmacy of the Universidade de Lisboa

This Glial meeting will focus on indirect and direct conversion of somatic cells into  neural cells to model diseases of the central nervous system (CNS), and on new evidences about the specific roles of different glial cell types, their regional diversity, and contribution to disease onset, progression and neurodegeneration. Emphasis will be given in how glial cells and neurons are intermingled and mutually depend on each other to maintan CNS homeostasis. The Symposium will provide forward looking activities where students will have the opportunity to interact, share and discuss their research data, as well as receive constructive feedback from scientists and leaders in the field.

The programme includes the participation of national and international speakers of indisputable scientific recognition in the area of neurodegenerative diseases.
