attendance and contacts10th anniversary of the Brains for Brain Foundation

We are pleased to announce that in these days, we are drafting the scientific program of the next B4B meeting that will take place at the Hotel Rafael Atocha in Madrid, Spain, on March 16-19, 2016.
As usual, the programme will contain scientific and a strategic sessions in which we will discuss:
1. Research achievements in the field of neurodegenerative diseases, in particular lysosomal storage disorders (LSDs) at clinical and basic science level and in the field of Blood Brain Barrier;
2. New recent advances on natural history and pathophysiology of LSDs;
3. Factors which control the entry into the brain of medicines and other therapeutic agents which may be helpful in treating central nervous system disease;
4. How B4B and InNerMeD partners might collaborate with the European Union to stimulate interest on research in rare diseases;
5. The role of the industries in driving innovation for new therapeutic approaches for true unmet needs.

Moreover, this year the programme includes a Plenary Session to mark the retirement of David Begley. This special session will reflect David’s major scientific contributions, and will consist of a mix of review lectures and contributions on new developments on Blood Brain Barrier and the delivery of therapeutics to the brain.

If you wish to attend the workshop, please get in touch with Mrs Paula Caprelli ( asap for your hotel arrangements.

Contrary to the last few editions of the Meeting, we are working with a new hotel (in a different city) so we need to know the number of participants as soon as possible since we must confirm with the hotel management.
Please get back to her shortly with the dates of your attendance, as well as your travel info (if you already have it), so we can book the rooms, meals and meeting services.

For general enquiries or any additional required information, please get in touch with Dr. Cinzia Maria Bellettato (

Thank you for your collaboration
