Save the Date for Brain 2013
Greetings Dear Colleagues,
On behalf of the Local Organizing Committee, we warmly invite you to join us at the XXVIth International Symposium on Cerebral Blood Flow & Metabolism and the XIth International Conference on Quantification of Brain Function with PET to be held in
Shanghai, China from May 20 to 23, 2013.
Following the tradition of previous meetings, "Brain 2013" will cover numerous aspects within the area of neuroscience research, particularly those related to brain function and metabolism, cerebral blood flow, the function of the neurovascular unit and the blood-brain barrier, brain imaging, and cerebrovascular pathology.
Our goal is to present the state-of-the art and novel discoveries that will increase our understanding of brain function under physiological and pathological conditions, and the most promising investigations in brain protection and neuroregeneration. Given the currently increasing research emphasis on translational medicine, Brain 2013 will present the most recent findings in the field that may have the potential to translate into future clinical applications. Leading scientist in these fields, members of the International Society for Cerebral Blood Flow and Metabolism (ISCBFM) and other exceptional scientists will participate as in previous biannual meetings of the ISCBFM.
The program committee is actively working to create an engaging scientific program that will be of interest to you.
Shanghai, the largest dynamic city in China, is home to over 20 million inhabitants. The city is a fascinating metropolis for tourists and is renowned for its historical landmarks such as the Bund and City God Temple, its modern Pudong skyline including the Oriental Pearl Tower. Shanghai also houses the best medical centers, universities, and neuroscience research programs in China.
Shanghai, whose meaning is "Upon-the-Sea", lives up to its legacy. With one of the busiest ports in the world, Shanghai is globally influenced and influential, as a center of commerce between the east and the west.
We are extremely thrilled to host the Brain13 & Brain PET '13 and hope that you will consider joining us in May 2013.
