New Avenues for Brain repair: Programming and reprogramming the Central Nervous System

The development of new therapies for neurodegenerative disease faces a multitude of challenges. Yet, an increased understanding of central nervous system development, of the barriers to regeneration during adult life, and the recent progress in reprogramming cell identities, carry promise to pave new avenues for brain repair.
This conference aims at providing a multidisciplinary examination of strategies and opportunities to make brain repair a future reality.
