Condividi su
Data dell'evento: dal 10/02/2017 al 14/02/2017

Dear Colleagues,
Once again we organized the International Meeting on Steroids and Nervous System and we are pleased to invite you in Torino (Italy) for the ninth edition of this biannual meeting. In these 15 years (we started in 2001) this meeting represented an important event for basic and clinical researchers working on this emerging scientific topic (see here for an article describing previous editions of the meeting).

As during the previous meetings, we will address state-of-the-art approaches in the field of steroids and nervous system, including behavior, epigenetics, genomic and non-genomic actions, aging, synaptic connectivity, glial cells, neurodegenerative and psychiatric disorders.

In particular, we will have 5 Plenary Lectures and 7 Symposia by the most important experts of the field. A few additional short communications (selected by the Organizing Committee) will complete each symposia.

New data on emerging trends and new developments of the field will be presented and discussed during the poster sessions. In addition, a round table on a very hot topic such as the link between Gut Microbiome and Brain Function will be held. Moreover, specific actions for young investigators, such as Young Investigator Symposium, Meet the Professor Lunch, Poster Prizes and Fellowship Support  will be organized.

Furthermore, a satellite symposium entirely dedicated to Neuroactive Steroids and Metabolic Axis will be held the day 11.

Finally, because our country is famous in the world for beauty, art, music and food, the good science provided by this meeting will be accompanied by social activities that we will organize. 

We are looking forward to your participation

Roberto C. Melcangi and GianCarlo Panzica

Paziente tetraplegico operato al CTO di Torino torna a usare le mani

Una notizia che abbiamo letto tutti di recente sui giornali. Noi del NICO abbiamo la fortuna di collaborare da anni con il dott. Bruno Battiston e il prof. Diego Garbossa - i chirurghi che hanno svolto l'operazione - e ci siamo fatti spiegare bene in cosa consiste l’intervento, quale era la situazione del paziente e quali saranno i possibili risultati. 
Tutto questo al di là delle semplificazioni e dei titoli roboanti dei giornali, comprensibilmente utilizzati per attirare l’attenzione dei lettori.
