International Neuropathology Meetings and Courses

Meeting and course organizers: if you wish to have your neuropathology meeting or course announced here, please contact the Euro-CNS Office

22-24 September 2016, Hamburg, Germany
Joint meeting of the German Society of Neuropathology and Neuroanatomy (DGNN) and the Scandinavian Neuropathological Society (SNS). 
The main topics of the meeting are: Neurodegeneration; Neuroinflammation; Neurooncology; Neuromuscular biology. You are cordially invited to contribute to the scientific content of the conference and to share your latest results in research by submitting an abstract to one of the conference topics. Further details on the congress website.

28 September -1 October 2016, Niagara on the Lake, London/Ontario, Canada
Meeting of the Canadian Association of Neuropathologists.

6-9 October 2016, Erlangen, Germany
International Summer School for Neuropathology and Epilepsy Surgery
. The Summer School offers a comprehensive training environment in small teaching groups at binocular or multihead microscopes to study the spectrum of epilepsy-associated lesions in surgical human brain tissue (see attached flyer and preliminary program). Distinguished lecturers will train participants in clinical semiology, imaging, and neurosurgery, thereby emphasizing the impact of neuropathology in clinical decision making. For details please click the link above.

6-9 October 2016, Ljubljana, Slovenia
11th International Congress on Non-Motor Dysfunctions in Parkinson's disease and Related Disorders (NMDPD 2016). NMDPD's aim is to discuss the new developments in the understanding of the non-motor aspects of Parkinson's disease and other movement disorders and their management. During the congress, there will be opportunity to deliberate on brain diseases and how they contribute to cognition and behavior. It will be tried to identify the psychological markers of Parkinson's dementia and of dementia with Lewy bodies, and also the biochemical and genetic factors involved. The overlap with Alzheimer's disease and with fronto-temporal dementia will be two other central issues.For further information, you can visit the website:

Amsterdam, the Netherlands, 12-14 October 2016
Euro-CNS Neuropathology Course 'Tumors of the Central Nervous System'.
This course and workshop covers the 2016 update of the WHO classification (typing and grading) of CNS tumors, supplemented by lectures on clinical and neuroradiological aspects, and molecular diagnostics relevant for daily clinical practice. The lectures will be given by a group of well known surgical neuropathologists. Histological slides of the whole spectrum of CNS tumors are available, and multiple time slots are planned for personal practical exercise as well as for interaction with the experts. For details please visit the ' CME Course' page on this website.

6 December 2016, Edinburgh, Scotland
Neurodegeneration and the 3Rs: Models, Mechanisms & Resources.
The Scottish TSE Network (STN) will host their annual one-day international symposium at the Roslin Institute (Edinburgh, UK) on state of the art approaches to studying neurodegenerative diseases that are consistent with the 3R principles (replacement, refinement, reduction) of animals in research. Topics will include cell-free protein misfolding assays, human stem cell-based approaches and transgenic C. elegans and Drosophila models, in addition to the opportunities offered by tissue banking and in silico analysis.  For the program, further information and registration please visit the symposium webpage. Early registration is advisable!

22-24 March 2017, Aachen, Germany
CME Training Course 'Muscle and Peripheral Nerve Pathology'. 
This three-day course and workshop will provide practising (neuro)pathologists, clinicians and researchers with up-to-date reviews of the classification and the diagnostic problems in muscle and peripheral nerve pathology. The course consists of alternate lectures and slide sessions. The course language is English. Participants will receive a richly illustrated work manual of the histopathology of the most common muscular disorders. Topics include: general muscle pathology; histochemistry; immunohistochemistry; enzyme histochemistry; muscular dystrophies; mitochondrial myopathies; congenital myopathies; inflammatory myopathies; toxic and metabolic neuropathies; demyelinating neuropathies;hereditary neuropathies; inflammatory neuropathies. For details please click our ' CME Courses' page.

28 March 2017, Vienna, Austria
The SYMPATH Symposium on Targeting Synucleinopathies.
This symposium will bring together world-leading experts from Europe and the US to discuss recent progress in developing therapeutic vaccinations targeting Parkinson's disease (PD) and Multiple System Atrophy (MSA). The agenda includes pathogenesis, biomarkers and clinical challenges in Parkinson’s. For details please visit the conference website.
