4th Eurogenesis Meeting

Tuesday 11 June 2019 - Thursday 13 June 2019

Adult neurogenesis in Physiology and Disease

EUROGENESIS 4th conference will cover several aspects of adult neurogenesis function and its related pathologies. It aims to highlight the benefits of interdisciplinary research for gathering innovative knowledge in adult neural stem cells biology, and will promote new opportunities for cross-border disciplines interactions.
