57th Annual Meeting of the German Society for Neuropathology and Neuroanatomy (DGNN)

German Society for Neuropathology and Neuroanatomy

12. - 15.09.2012, Erlangen


Dear colleagues!

Welcome to the abstract site of the 57th Annual Meeting of the German Society for Neuropathology and Neuroanatomy, scheduled from 12 till 15 September 2012 in Erlangen, Germany! This year‘s scientific programme will particularly reflect the strength of current translational neuropathology research in the field of brain tumors, including tumors of the sellar region, neuro-muscular disorders, epilepsies, neurodegeneration and brain inflammation!

We have received 134 scientific abstracts, from which 18 were selected as young investigator’s oral platform presentations following a peer review process. Our delegates and speakers will travel from 12 European countries as well as 12 nations in North and South America, Australia, Africa and Asia. This may reflect the broad interest in our programme, but may also recognize the translational approach to organize this annual German neuropathology conference as a bridge from bench to bedside research.

The meeting also gives us the occasion to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Neuropathology Department in Erlangen (!

Current and detailed information on the meeting can be found on the conference website


Yours faithfully

Prof. Dr. Ingmar Blümcke
Conference chair
