Belgian Brain Barriers Symposium

During this event, the Brain Barriers Belgium (BBBelgium) network will be officially launched. BBBelgium is aimed at promoting collaborations, visibility and mobility, specifically for young researchers in the field.

The Belgian Brain Barriers symposium welcomes renowned international keynote speakers, national scientists and provides a great opportunity for early career researchers to present their work, share information on the barriers of the CNS and build a network. Moreover, PhD and Master students will have opportunity to get valuable advice about future career options. We therefore strongly encourage young researches to submit an abstract for a poster or oral presentation.

This BBB symposium will take place annually, with a different location every year, giving the opportunity to all researchers working in the field of brain barriers, to join and share their work.

This symposium will take place on the 30th of November at Hasselt University, Belgium.
