Cholinergic system meets neuroinflammation

Cholinergic system meets neuroinflammation - from bench to bedside and back, focusing on neuroinflammation.

In the early 19th century, Otto Loewi discovered the "Vagusstoff", released from stimulated fibres of the cardiac Nervus vagus and latter named acetylcholin. This discovery laid the foundation for our molecular understanding of the autonomous nervous system. Since these days, both neuronal as well as non-neuronal sources of acetylcholine,
and its importance for a plethora of biological functions have been discovered. The proven involvement in health and disease underlines the importance of acetylcholine and the cholinergic system, resembling an evolutionarily conserved master regulator of homeostasis and potential drug target.

The thematical framework of our meeting aims to cover both worlds - bench and bedside, focusing on neuroinflammation. Therefore, we are happy to welcome the world's most renown basic scientists in the field of cholinergic research together with outstanding physician scientist acting on the front line of patient treatment as speakers in our meeting.

Combination of search terms

You can combine search terms with and, or and/or not, e.g. Philo not logy.

Brackets

You can use brackets to separate combinations from each other, e.g. (Philo not logy) or (Psycho and logy).

Phrases

Coherent groups of words will be located as complete phrases if you put them into quotation marks, e.g. “Federal Republic of Germany”.

Selection criteria

You can also use the advanced search without entering search terms. It will then follow the criteria you have selected (e.g. country or subject area).

If you have not selected any criteria in a given category, the entire category will be searched (e.g. all subject areas or all countries).
