Joint symposium of the 4th International Neural Regeneration Symposium (INRS2014), the 6th International Spinal Cord Injury Treatments and Trials Symposium (ISCITT) and the 9th Asia Pacific Symposium on Neural Regeneration (APSNR)

The bringing together of these symposia here in Nanjing organized by Neural Regeneration Research (Press), The Chinese Neuroscience Society and Nantong University, aims to provide an excellent opportunity for cross-disciplinary interactions and initiatives, a prospect that we are sure has made the meeting even more attractive to local scientists and international visitors. Many exciting and cutting edge issues are to be addressed, including latest advances in neural regeneration and protection, axonal guidance and tissue engineering, stem cell biology, gene therapy and drug development. A vitally important element running through the entire meeting is how best to translate experimental work into a clinical context, and there will be updates on ongoing clinical trials in various fields including neurotrauma, neurodegeneration and regenerative medicine.
