2nd International Symposium on Peripheral Nerve Regeneration
23 January - OPENING CEREMONY
24-25 January 2014
Centro Congressi TORINO INCONTRA Via Nino Costa 8, Torino
The 2nd ISPNR will bring together researchers and students from diverse discipline. The symposium acts as a platform for presenting and discussing new developments in the field of nerve regeneration and tissue engineering.
Interest in the study of peripheral nerve repair and regeneration has become a hot topic in regenerative medicine and tissue engineering.
However, in spite of the scientific advancements, applications to the patients is still limited and it appears that to optimize the strategy for tissue engineering of the peripheral nerve in the clinical perspective, more basic research is needed and neuroscientists have to strive for a new level of innovation which will bring together (in a multi-translational approach) the main pillars of tissue engineering, namely
1) Reconstructive microsurgery
2) Transplantation (of tissues, cells and genes)
3) Material science and bioengineering
4) Physical therapy and biostimulation.
In line with this growing interest, and following the success of the 1st Symposium (December 2009), the 2nd International Symposium on Peripheral Nerve Regeneration is aimed at bringing together an international and interdisciplinary panel of scientists that critically address some the most important issues in this emerging biomedical field.
There will be no participation fees for ISPNR - 2014.
Although no payment is required, pre-registration is strongly suggested since the number of attendees is limited and registrations will be accepted on a first-come base.

Interferenti endocrini. Il Parlamento europeo impegna la Commissione a emanare norme più restrittive
Buone notizie da Bruxelles. Il Parlamento europeo ha approvato a larga maggioranza una risoluzione che impegna la Commissione (vecchia e nuova) a emanare entro giugno 2020 una normativa più restrittiva che disciplini cosmetici, giocattoli e imballaggi alimentari e che - finalmente - applichi agli EDCs le stesse cautele usate per i composti classificati come sospetti cangerogeni. Una tesi a lungo sostenuta dalla Endrocrine Society e fortemente osteggiata dai rappresentanti della industria chimica.
