Adult Neurogenesis: Evolution, Regulation and Function
Center for Regenerative Therapies Dresden *Dresden, GERMANY Visit the Venue to read more
In 2015 we celebrate the 50th anniversary of Joseph Altman's landmark discovery of adult neurogenesis. The 2015 Abcam conference on adult neurogenesis aims at putting the developmental process of adult neurogenesis and its regulation into the wider context of its functional and presumed evolutionary relevance.
Fourth conference in the series!
Following meetings in Dresden (2007), Frauenchiemsee (2010) and Barcelona (2012), we are delighted to have announce we will be returning to Dresden for the fourth conference in the Adult Neurogenesis meeting series chaired by Prof Gerd Kempermann (Center for Regenerative Therapies TU Dresden, Germany).
Invited speaker line-up
The conference keynote lecture will be given by Fred H Gage (Salk Institute for Biological Studies, US). Other confirmed speakers include Jonas Frisen, Federico Calegari, Nora Abrous, Irmgard Amrein, Paul Frankland, Hannah Monyer, Hongjun Song and Sebastian Jessberger.
- Early bird registrations: February 9, 2015
- Oral abstract submission: February 9, 2015
- Standard registrations: March 26, 2015
- Poster abstract submission: March 26, 2015
Who should attend this conference?
This meeting will be excellent for principal investigators, postdoctoral fellows, graduate students and researchers in clinical disciplines who are seeking to learn about the impact of adult neurogenesis in their fields of medicine.
Talk/poster presentation is not required to attend the conference.

Center for Regenerative Therapies Dresden
Started on January 1, 2006, the Center for Regenerative Therapies Dresden is an interdisciplinary and interconnected network of 15 core research groups and over 75 principal investigators from seven research institutes in Dresden. This network provides the expertise to develop novel regenerative therapies fast and efficiently. The CRTD's goal is to develop advanced treatments for haemato-oncological neurodegenerative, diabetic, bone and cardiovascular diseases.
Abstracts for oral and poster presentation are invited. Those which most closely fit within the topics of the meeting will be selected for presentation and published in the conference abstract book
Abstracts can be submitted during online registration.
