Connecting European Neuroscience

RNA Mechanisms and Brain Disease

20-23 October 2021: Rungstedgaard, north of Copenhagen, Denmark


Application opens on 1 June 2021

The morphology and complexity of neurons provides unique challenges for the maintenance and modification of the neuronal transcriptome and proteome in the cell body and at synapses. In this meeting, we will explore how neurons regulate RNA molecules and protein synthesis and how these mechanisms represent vulnerabilities for various neurological diseases.

Organised by FENS in collaboration with Lundbeck Foundation, awarder of The Brain Prize,  these bi-annual conferences bring together outstanding researchers in key areas of contemporary neuroscience to discuss current concepts and define challenges for future research.

The Brain Conferences

The Brain Conferences are intimate-scale meetings focused on current topics in neuroscience. Two conferences per year are organised by FENS in collaboration with Lundbeck Foundation, the awarder of The Brain Prize.
