NECTAR meeting 2011

The NECTAR meeting is an annual event across Europe, which this year will be held in Cambridge, UK, organised by Roger Barker and his team at the Cambridge Centre for Brain Repair, University of Cambridge and Addenbrooke's Hospital.

This 21st Network of European CNS Transplantation and Restoration will take place at the University Arms in Cambridge on Thursday 8th - Friday 9th December 2011.

The meeting brings together experts in diseases of the CNS (especially Parkinson's and Huntington's disease) and their management, including brain repair, and tackles up-to-date issues in CNS diseases. It is attended by clinicians and basic scientists. This year we have a distinguished line up of speakers from the UK and abroad, including Prof Anders Bjorklund, Prof Guido Nikkhah, Prof Jeffery Kordower and Prof Robin Franklin to name a few.

The Network of European CNS Transplantation and Restoration (NECTAR) was founded more than 20 years ago and celebrated its anniversary in 2010 in Freiburg at the 20th annual conference. NECTAR's aim is to bring together European groups who share the common goal of protecting, repairing and restoring the central nervous system damaged through degenerative disease or injury. The main protagonists and now newer generations of scientists continue their research exploring cell transplantation and gene therapy as therapeutic strategies to improve the lives of patients with various neurological disorders.
