Bioengineering and Neuronal Remodelling

This one-day meeting will focus on advances in biomedicine aimed at repairing peripheral nerves and spinal cord. There will be eight high profile speakers and opportunities for early-career scientists to present their work - as a poster presentation from which one will be selected for oral presentation. The convenor of the meeting will be Professor Giorgio Terenghi (Professor of Tissue Regeneration at the University of Manchester).
