THE FIRST INTERNATIONAL RITA LEVI-MONTALCINI’S SCIENTIFIC MEETING
NERVE GROWTH FACTOR: NEUROSCIENCE AND THERAPY

 

Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to present the first International “Rita Levi-Montalcini” scientific meeting, to be held in Bologna (Italy) next April 22-23, 2016. This meeting will bring together scientists from across the world and will provide a unique opportunity to discuss recent findings about the role of NGF and related neurotrophic factors in the regulation and mechanisms involved in cell proliferation, differentiation and apoptosis in the peripheral and central nervous systems. Speakers will also present and discuss recent preclinical and clinical observations regarding the protective action of neurotrophic factors in cell therapy for the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease, and the potential clinical role of NGF for cutaneous damages and in the treatment of ocular disorders.
