Dear colleagues, dear friends,
it is a great pleasure for us to invite you to participate in the Annual Meeting of the Study Group Neurochemistry which is scheduled to take place in Hamburg, September 14 - 15, 2007.
In keeping with the traditions of these annual meetings, the 2007 meeting will bring together those actively engaged in research for the purpose of reviewing and discussing recent progress in neurochemistry/neurobiology and medicine in general, exchanging information, and relating research from in vitro studies up to investigations in the human brain.
The particular theme selected for the 2007 meeting is
Molecular pathways in health and disease of the nervous system
Deficiencies in neural signaling play a role in a number of disorders in the central nervous system. Regardless of whether they appear as a primary defect or whether they are consequences of other pathogenic insults, detailed knowledges of the molecular mechanisms of particular signaling cascades should allow for the derivation of therapeutic strategies to selectively intervene in pathogenic signaling processing.
However, contributions are not restricted to the main topic of the meeting. There will be large poster sessions in which all aspects and subfields of neurochemistry and neuroscience may be presented and may further provide a forum for extensive discussions of the latest developments as well as to meet colleagues and experts.
The conference will take place in Hamburg and provides a lovely place to continue further scientific debates and discussions after the sessions in a more relaxed atmosphere.
We are cordially inviting you to come and to experience this meeting with us, and are looking forward to welcoming you in Hamburg this autumn.
