Theme Announced for 29th Annual Symposium of Veterinary Neurology 2016

24 September 2015

UK - ‘Applied Translational Neuroscience’ has been unveiled as the theme of next year’s Annual Symposium of the European Veterinary Society of Neurology (ESVN) and European College of Veterinary Neurology (ECVN), which will be held in September 2016 in Edinburgh, UK.

The symposium will aim to bridge the gap between the laboratory and day-to-day practice: ‘From Laboratory to Labrador’.

Key speakers will discuss how basic and comparative research informs advances in veterinary and human neurology. The programme will feature keynote lectures, short oral presentations of recent research findings, and case reports.

Registrations for the event, which will run from 15-18 September 2016 in Scotland, are now open.

Dr Simon Wheeler, Symposium Chairman, Veterinary Neurology, UK says: “The symposium will feature a range of experimental models and approaches to study nervous system function and malfunction. It will be an opportunity to discover different investigations into genetic, molecular, systems aspects, functional and structural components.

“We have a comprehensive agenda and are planning an enjoyable and enriching symposium for what we anticipate will be an attendance of more than 300 delegates.

“The event will build on the success of this year’s symposium in Amsterdam, which brought together industry professionals from across Europe,” Dr Wheeler adds.

The conference will provide aspiring young neurologists with the opportunity of presenting a poster for the Platinum Sponsor Boehringer Ingelheim prize. In addition, there will be The John Presthus Award for the best abstract presentation, to be judged by the scientific committee. For a chance to win, all abstracts must be submitted online before 1 July 2016.

The event will begin with a welcome reception hosted by ESVN and ECVN on Thursday 15 September in The Museum of The Royal College of Surgeons, Scotland’s oldest museum, which opened in 1883.

On Friday evening a special gala dinner will be held in the Edinburgh Caves, a UNESCO World Heritage site that will offer delegates a chance to experience a key part of Scottish history.
