Meet Europe's top neurobiologists in Leuven, Belgium

Leuven, Belgium − From 2 - 6 September, some 370 neurobiologists from 25 countries will gather in Leuven to address the state of affairs of current research. A great deal of attention will be paid to the use of the fruit fly (Drosophila) for gaining greater insight into various processes in the brain and the nervous system. Patrick Callaerts and Bassem Hassan, scientists from VIB (the Flanders Interuniversity Institute for Biotechnology) connected to the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, are organizing this 11th European Drosophila Neurobiology Conference. Over the long term, bringing the top neurobiologists together will create a base for developing treatments for a large number of diseases. You are kindly invited to attend this conference, or a portion of it. An area will be provided for interviews with the speakers.

An international conference

To emphasize the importance of the use of Drosophila in neurobiological research, Patrick Callaerts and Bassem Hassan are organizing the 11th European Drosophila Neurobiology Conference from 2 to 6 September 2006. Each day of the conference is devoted to a particular theme, which is then developed in a variety of presentations and poster sessions.

Here are the themes for each day: Saturday, 2 September, 'Early development'; Sunday, 3 September, 'Specification and differentiation of neurons and glia'; Monday, 4 September, 'Formation and function of the neural circuits'; Tuesday, 5 September, 'Plasticity and behavior'; and Wednesday, 6 September, 'Neural dysfunction'. In addition to the 11 invited speakers (overviews of their presentations are attached here), another 80 scientists will give presentations about their research and 192 researchers will present their work by means of posters.

370 delegates from 25 different countries will participate in the conference, where prominent scientists in the field of neurobiology will present their vision of current research. The conf
