Spanish Glial Network Satellite Event

EVENT TITLE: 11th Meeting of the Spanish Glial Network


This event is focused on gathering researchers working in Spanish institutions whose interest in focused on glia. Current members of the Spanish Glial Network cover multiple aspects on the contribution of glial cells to nervous system function and dysfunction from very diverse viewpoints and approaches, including morphology, electrophysiology, animal models, cell and organotypic cultures, optogenetics, pharmacology, genetics, proteomics or flow cytometry to mention but a few. Given the multidisciplinary origin of Spanish gliologists we believe this meeting will promote collaboration between groups and researchers of diverse backgrounds, but it will also serve as an exhibitor for a broader audience, including those not currently working in glia.
