The neuroendocrinologists in Bordeaux have the honor to organize in 2021 the 4th joint meeting between the SNE (French Society for Neuroendocrinology) and the BSN (British Society for Neuroendocrinology).

The congress will last 3 full days, from the 22nd to the 24th of September 2021, and will be entirely online. The scientific program elaborated by both the SNE’s and BSN’s scientific committees includes 4 plenary lectures and 4 symposia. The objective of the meeting is to highlight the recent advances in Neuroendocrinology with the best specialists in the field.

Plenary lectures:

Joëlle Cohen-Tannoudji, Waljit Dhillo, Sakina Mhaouty-Kodja, Steve A. Brown


-Development and Plasticity of Neuroendocrine Systems Involved in Metabolic Regulation

-Towards a dynamical understanding of stress, sleep, and metabolism

-Emerging concepts in the central control of fertility or of ovulation

-New insights in the hypothalamic circuitry regulating energy metabolism: physiological and pathophysiological implications

Young researchers will have the opportunity to present their work either through a short oral communication or during one of the three poster sessions of our meeting. The best posters and oral communications will be selected for a special prize. Young researchers will also have the opportunity to discuss with Journal editors, established senior and junior researchers and researchers from private companies through a speed networking event.

All details can be found on the conference website: BSN-SNE 2021

-MP Moisan, Nutrineuro
-D Cota, NCM

Atelier « Cerveau – microbiote »

Les Interactions réciproques entre le Cerveau et le Microbiote suscitent un intérêt croissant dans la communauté scientifique et chez le grand public.

Pour répondre à cette demande, l’Institut Thématique Multi – Organisme (ITMO) Neurosciences, Sciences Cognitives, Neurologie, Psychiatrie, avec la participation des ITMOs Physiopathologie, Métabolisme, Nutrition et Immunologie, inflammation, infectiologie et microbiologie, organise un atelier « Cerveau-Microbiote ».

Cet atelier vise à réunir des scientifiques (chercheurs, étudiants, ingénieurs) de ces champs disciplinaires, déjà impliqués dans ce nouveau domaine de Recherche ou souhaitant développer des travaux dans celui-ci. Il est également ouvert aux personnes ayant un intérêt marqué pour ce domaine.

L’atelier se tiendra à l’amphithéâtre Buffon, à Paris, et sera également retransmis en direct en ligne.
