Investigating Functions & Roles of Astrocytes in Neuroinflammation Pathology

Time: 8:30 am
day: Pre-Conference Day Track A 1


With the historical spotlight focused on microglia, recent functional investigation and therapeutic development has focused on astrocytes to better understand and target the wider neuroinflammatory environment.

Workshop highlights include:

• What is our current understanding of the significance of astrocytes associated with neuroinflammation?

• Advancements in in vitro modeling, assay development, and biomarker discovery for studying reactive astrocytes

• Brainstorming targets and therapeutic development against reactive astrocytes
