About the 10th International Meeting on Steroids and Nervous System

Since 2001, this meeting has been an important event for basic and clinical researchers working on this emerging scientific topic. The meeting will address state-of-the-art approaches in the field of steroids and nervous system, including:

  • behaviour
  • epigenetic
  • genomic and non-genomic actions
  • vitamin D
  • neurodegenerative and psychiatric disorders
  • interference among endocrine disruptors
  • steroid signaling

There will be five Plenary Lectures and 11 Symposia or minisymposia given by steroid and nervous system experts. A few additional short communications (selected by the Organizing Committee) will complete some symposia. New data on emerging trends and new developments of the field will be presented and discussed during the poster sessions. In addition, a round table on a very hot topic The problem with sex differences will be held.

Specific activities for young investigators, such as Young Investigator Symposium, Meet the Professor Lunch, Poster Prizes and Fellowship Support will be organized.

On 16 February a satellite symposium dedicated to Steroids and the Nervous System: Past and Future will be held.
