YORBA LINDA, CALIF. — BioConference Live will host its Neuroscience Conference March 19 and 20, with experts and vendors ready to interact and network in real time.

The free online-only Neuroscience Conference will bring together professionals from around the world to learn about advances in their field through real-time networking and live video webcasts. Research scientists, medical experts, principal investigators, post docs, lab directors, and other medical professionals will hear about the latest science research and gain knowledge they can apply in their own research and jobs, all while earning free continuing medical education (CME) credits. “Our conference requires no travel and no time away from the hospital or lab,” Greg Cruikshank, CEO of BioConference Live said. “Attendees still receive all the benefits of physically attending a conference.”

Invited speakers are distinguished scientists in the field of neuroscience who will present their research findings, give their views and perspective on cutting-edge neuroscience research topics and engage in information exchange through discussion forums and online interactios with the audience.

The Neuroscience conference will include topics from science journals such as Neurologic Function and Dysfunction, Behavioral and Cognitive Neuroscience, Neurologic Dysfunction from Human Diseases to Molecular Mechanism, Nervous System Development, Epigenetic Regulation, and Genetics of Neurologic Diseases. Also to be covered are neurological diseases from lab to clinic, including Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, ALS, Huntington’s disease, Epilepsy, traumatic brain and spinal cord injury, and neuropsychiatric disorders. 

In addition to topics on diseases, the conference will also cover emerging therapies, such as immunomodulation, non-coding RNA, stem cells, neurorobotics, neuroengineering, combinatorial therapies, myelin repair, and imaging technologies – in vitro and in vivo. Methods of identifying and treating neurological diseases – such as diagnostic tests, tools that detect therapeutic responses, and biomarkers – will be discussed in Power of Methods.

 Featured speakers include:

Anthony Grace, PhD - Distinguished Professor of Neuroscience, Professor of Psychiatry and Psychology Department of Neuroscience, University of Pittsburgh

Edward S. Boyden, PhD - AT&T Career Development Associate Professor, Associate Professor, MIT Media Lab/ Joint Professor, MIT

Ralph-Axel Mueller, PhD - Professor, Director of the Brain Development Imaging Lab Professor of Psychology, Department of Psy, San Diego State University

Berislav V. Zlokovic, PhD - Director, Zilkha Neurogenetic Institute Professor and Chair, Department of Physiology and Biophysics, University of Southern California

Scott W. Emmons, PhD - Siegfried Ullmann Professor of Genetics, Professor of Neuroscience, Albert Einstein College of Medicine

Clifford Jack Jr., MD - Alexander Family Professor of Alzheimer's Disease Research, Professor of Radiology, Neuradiologist, Mayo Clinic College of Medicine

BioConference Live makes it easy for the neuroscience community to connect and learn about science current events, as well as new concepts, techniques, and tools they can apply to diagnosis and medical research. Starting in the BioConference Live Lobby, which is the central navigation point for conference content, attendees will be able to have questions answered by industry experts in real-time during keynote sessions , instant message and video chat with peers and conference speakers, and even virtually browse an exhibit floor with virtual booths that include video, documents, and chat.

 “The virtual Neuroscience conference is taking on a challenge to present a big picture of a very broad and diverse field of neuroscience from basic research to clinic. The intense two-day program will encompass teaching presentations, original research data, broad overview of new frontiers given by thought leaders in the field and discussion forums,” Tatjana Matejic, Ph.D., (ABMLI), The Committee Chair for BioConference Live Neuroscience said.
