ISSCR Annual Meeting 2013 - Boston
Are you planning on attending ISSCR Boston 2013 in June? This meeting will take place just days before ISSCR Annual meeting 2013 begins at Harvard University. Save on travel costs and attend two meetings while you are in Boston!


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.
