Blood Brain Barrier

The purpose of this Cold Spring Harbor meeting is to explore and encourage new conceptual approaches and to apply novel methods to the neuroprotective physiologies of BBB structures. Our goal is pair genetic model organism biological methods with recent insights in vertebrate BBB physiology and development. We hope to create cross fertilization between fields that rarely see each other and get people thinking about how model systems can help parse the regulatory networks necessary for parsimonious BBB function.

Tentative Topics:
Molecular Control of BBB Development & Function
Cellular & Acellular Elements of the BBB
Model Organisms to Study the BBB
Retinal Vasculature + Other Tissue Barriers
BBB in Inflammation & Disease
Crossing the BBB
+ show speakers and program
