American Society for Neural Therapy and Repair
25 Apr 2013 - 27 Apr 2013 - Clearwater Beach, FL, USA
The focus of the meeting is to advance novel treatment strategies in neural repair. Clinical trials are often presented based on basic science research reported at previous meetings. Thus, students and postdoctoral fellows, as well as other attendees not only learn about the “bench science”, but they actively participate in discussions with clinicians about translational issues. This interaction fosters the translation from the bench to the bedside and is a unique feature of ASNTR’s annual meeting.
Since its inception in 1994, the ASNTR has convened every year with an attendance of approximately 200 participants. This society has a strong tradition of translational research in the fields of cell transplantation and neuro/tissue engineering, as well as gene therapy as applied to neurological diseases (e.g. Parkinson’s disease, Huntington’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, stroke, spinal cord injury and traumatic brain injury).
