Axons: From Cell Biology to Pathology
joint with Traumatic Brain Injury: Clinical, Pathological and Translational Mechanisms
Organizer(s): Giampietro Schiavo, Bruce D. Carter and Rejji Kuruvilla
Date: January 24 - 27, 2016
Location: Eldorado Hotel & Spa, Santa Fe, NM, USA
Supported by the Directors' Fund
Summary of Meeting:
The development and maintenance of axons require efficient long-range communication in the nervous system. Axons extend distances ranging from a fraction of a millimeter to more than a meter in humans, lengths that require specialized mechanisms for formation, maintenance and regeneration. Given their extreme polarity and size, axons are particularly vulnerable to the risk of degeneration and dysfunction upon injury or disease. This Keystone Symposia meeting will bring together scientists from multiple disciplines interested in the common goal of addressing problems rooted in axonal cell biology, such as intracellular transport of organelles and guidance, with a view to accelerating progress in the field of axonal biology and pathology. This is a unique meeting that will cover a broad spectrum of the latest developments in axonal research, from development and maintenance, through to survival and repair, in both the central and peripheral nervous system. Additional topics and late-breaking developments will be incorporated via talks selected from abstracts, specifically encouraging participation of young researchers and those new to the field. The multidisciplinary theme and shared focus will facilitate communication from basic to clinical neuroscience, bridging these two communities and creating unique opportunities to synergize and collaborate.
