It is our sincere pleasure to welcome you to 4th International Symposium and School for Young Scientists “Brain and Neuroplasticity: Structural and Molecular Aspects” from May 1-7, 2019 at Ilia State University and I. Beritashvili Center of Experimental Biomedicine, in the vibrant international city of Tbilisi, Georgia.
We extend a very warm welcome and note of appreciation to Shota Rustaveli National Science Foundation for generous support.
The Symposium and School will serve as a platform to engage in motivating discussions, data exchange, and perceiving modern ideas in the field of Experimental and Clinical Neuroscience. Both events offer open atmosphere, allowing participants to focus on academic exchange of ideas and providing strong opportunity for building up a network of professional relationships.
We hope that you will enjoy Georgian meeting and that your interaction with colleagues from several countries will stimulate a creative discussions and will be personally rewarding. We also trust that our international guests will enjoy the visit to the beautiful and exciting Tbilisi, in May 2019.
The participants are invited to send abstracts for oral and poster presentations regarding the latest information in cellular and molecular biology, biochemistry, biophysics, multimodality imaging, neuroinformatics, and behavioral studies.
The total number of participants in this event is expected to exceed 80.
SESSION FOR YOUNG SCIENTISTS (the best presentation will be awarded by Sigma Xi-Georgia)
ROUND TABLE: BRAIN AND NEUROPLASTICITY – FUTURE DIRECTIONS OF RESEARCH
SCHOOL FOR YOUNG SCIENTISTS
TRAININGS in ELECTRON MICROSCOPY, ATOMIC FORCE MICROSCOPY, IMMUNOCYTOCHEMISTRY and other TECHNIQUES

Dear Young Scientists,
Following the success of our previous School, it is our great pleasure to invite you to attend Second International School for Young Scientists “Brain and Neuroplasticity: Structural and Molecular Aspects” which will take place 3-7 May, 2019, at Ilia State University and I. Beritashvili Center of Experimental Biomedicine, Tbilisi, Georgia.
New and interesting data is still being been accumulated regarding the Neuroplasticity and the mechanisms of cellular and molecular damage that are involved in the development of different pathologies. New technical approaches continue to be developed and it is about time for the scientists to discuss these issues, to learn from each other, to exchange ideas and to benefit from one another’s expertise. This is the main mission of the School and the scientific program is designed to talk about the most important steps of the process of secretion.
In the frame of Seasonal School twenty young scientists: master students, PhD students, postdoctoral fellows and young researchers from different universities and scientific organizations of Georgia will learn (i) the cellular and molecular mechanisms of Neuroplasticity; (ii) the Neuroplasticity mechanisms and the pathophysiology of functional neurological disorders; (iii) will get the knowledge about some of the most relevant and modern scientific methods that are largely used for the investigation of cell plasticity, (iv) will study electron microscopic, atomic force microscopic, immunocytochemical and other techniques – high-informative approaches, suitable for the examination of fine structure of brain.
We would like to encourage the participants to contribute to Neuroscience Research. We look forward to welcoming you at our School!
