On behalf of the ISCBFM President and the Local Organizing Committee, we invite you to join us at Berlin BRAIN & BRAIN PET 2017, the 28rd International Symposium on Cerebral Blood Flow, Metabolism and Function and the 13th International Conference on Quantification of Brain Function with PET to be held in Berlin, Germany from April 1st – 4th 2017. Following the tradition of previous meetings, BRAIN & BRAIN PET 2017 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, brain repair, 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 through basic, translational, and clinical investigation. 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 our previous biannual meetings. The program committee is actively working to create an engaging scientific program that will be of interest to you.
Berlin, the German capital, is shaped by history. Separated by a wall for decades and reunified in 1989, it today has a multicultural and international atmosphere. But not only world history has shaped Berlin, it was and still is a hotspot of medical history. In 2010, the Charité, Berlin’s university hospital and medical school celebrated its 300 birthday. Names like Hermann von Helmholtz, Rudolf Virchow, or Cécile and Oscar Vogt have been pioneers of modern neuroscience. Berlin with its museums, sights, clubs and universities, today is a modern city which attracts creatives and artists of all sorts, students, scientists, and tourists alike. Surrounded by lakes and waterways, Berlin will provide delegates and their families with a wealth of opportunities for discoveries and enjoyment, at the conference and beyond.
We very much look forward to your participation in BRAIN & BRAIN PET 2017 and to welcoming you to Berlin.
