List of the symposium speakers.

Welcome to Cellular ecosystems in CNS repair symposium.

This gathering brings together leading scientists in the field of regenerative biology and medicine in the nervous system. The lectures will delve into the complex cellular interactions that underlie injury and regeneration, spanning novel research methodologies and model systems that are reshaping our understanding of CNS repair and opening novel therapeutic strategies to promote recovery after CNS injuries.

Coffee and lunch will be provided for those who register to the symposium.
There is no registration fee.
