The 2023 NECTAR meeting will take place on 23-25th October in Naples, Italy at the Università degli Studi di Napoli Federico II. The organizing committee will soon start working on the program. Stay tuned!
The Network for European CNS Transplantation and Restoration (NECTAR) was founded over 25 years ago. NECTAR’s aim is to bring together European groups who share the common goal of protecting, repairing and restoring the central nervous system damaged through degenerative disease or injury. The main protagonists and now newer generations of scientists continue their research exploring cell transplantation and gene therapy as therapeutic strategies to improve the lives of patients with various neurological disorders.
Functional restoration in the central nervous system has attracted increasing attention recently, not only from scientists and clinicians worldwide, but also from patient foundations, media and healthcare systems. With planned or ongoing clinical trials in cell replacement, neuroprotection and gene therapy, and applications in Parkinson’s disease, Huntington’s disease and stroke by our members, the relevance of NECTAR has never been greater.
