The French Neuroscience Society is pleased to invite you at its 3rd thematic meeting that will be held on the 7th and 8th of June 2018 in Strasbourg, the City of the European Parliament.

The present meeting will focus on the molecular basis of neurodevelopmental and neurodegenerative diseases with a strong emphasis on genetics based breakthroughs and development. The meeting will cover the various topics linked to these diseases, including genetics: from gene to function and therapeutic approaches, cellular and molecular mechanisms, as well as animal models for studying neurodevelopmental and neurodegenerative diseases. The scientific program, proposed by the neuroscientific community of Strasbourg, includes 4 plenary lectures, 4 symposia as well as poster sessions, all presented in English. The Alfred Fessard Lecture will also be given during this meeting.

Strasbourg researchers, both clinical and basic sciences, gathered within the Federal Research Organization, Strasbourg Neuropole, are particularly interested and involved in neurodevelopmental and neurodegenerative disorders including clinical diagnosis expertise, genetic identification, epigenetic mechanisms, pathophysiological approaches and therapeutical strategies. Strasbourg teams are recognized as national leaders in gene identifications by next generation sequencing and animal modeling for rare neurodevelopmental and neurodegenerative disorders.

The aim of the meeting is to promote discussions and sharing of new findings among basic scientists, clinical researchers, in order to advance our understanding of neurodevelopment and neurodegeneration in areas urgently requiring therapeutic progress.

In addition, in partnership with the local student association Doctoneuro, a roundtable discussion will be organized on the theme «Which career with a PhD?». 10 speakers with a PhD in neurosciences working in industry, associations, national or international agencies or edition, will shortly present their background and then participate in a scientific «speed dating» to share their professional experiences with students (session limited to 50 participants).

We are looking forward welcoming you all in Strasbourg!
