ICMMN 17

17th biennial International Conference on Monitoring Molecules in Neuroscience

Sun, 25 Mar 2018 – Wed, 28 Mar 2018

Welcome to the 17th biennial International Conference on Monitoring Molecules in Neuroscience. The conference will take place at the University of Oxford, UK from March 25th to 28th, 2018.

The meeting discusses the development or application of methods for measuring neuroactive molecules to further our understanding of nervous system function in health and disease. It brings together researchers who are on the cutting edge of development of neurochemical tools with those who are interested in adopting these techniques and would like to learn more. Details of previous society meetings can be found by clicking here. In the continued tradition of the meeting, we strongly encourage attendance from PhD students and junior scientists.

Main goals of the Oxford meeting:

  • Discuss the development or application of state-of-the-art methods for measuring neuroactive molecules.
  • Provide new knowledge about brain function and its dysfunction in disease.
  • Bring together experts at the cutting edge of use of neurochemical tools with neuroscientists who want to adopt these techniques, to share expertise and nurture the next generation of neuroscientists.
  • Provide a platform for PhD students and junior researchers to present their work on an international stage and interact with leaders in the field
  • Build a strong community of scientists who use methods to monitor neurochemicals to promote sharing of expertise, foster collaborations and establish best practice.
