The Lancet Summit: Inflammation and Immunity in Disorders of the Brain and Mind

November 15-17, 2018 | NH Collection Barcelona Tower, Barcelona, Spain

Join The Lancet Neurology and The Lancet Psychiatry for a landmark conference in the exciting clinical field of immunological disorders of the brain and mind. This developing area not only presents neurologists and psychiatrists with potential new treatments for their patients, but also demands a rethink of the boundaries of the two disciplines, and how they will move forward together. By bringing together both professions, this conference will provide vital education as well as launching future research and clinical collaborations.

We welcome poster presentations.

Topics include:

• Autoimmunity in the central nervous system
• The blood-brain barrier in neurological and psychiatric illness
• The immune system and disorders of the brain and mind
• Screening for and managing neuroimmunological disorders in clinical practice
