Lost in the Maze? Navigating Evidence and Ethics in Translational Neuroscience @ Herrenhausen Palace, Hanover, Germany
Feb 14 – Feb 16 all-day

Conference overview:

Clinical trials for novel treatment modalities to combat a range of neurological diseases and injuries are critically needed. However, safely and ethically conducting such trials often proves daunting, for a range of reasons. Concerns about such matters as non-validated or irreproducible pre-clinical research results, researchers’ needs to divide their time between their research and pursuing funding, and the inflated expectations produced by science hype all hinder efforts to conduct investigations responsibly. The Herrenhausen Conference has been specifically designed to explore these concerns and investigate strategies that can mitigate them. It will convene an international and interdisciplinary faculty to join with attendees in two and a half-days worth of examination and discussion, in both large and small group settings, aimed at producing practical recommendations for facilitating safe and ethically responsible investigations of new modalities that might better serve the health needs of patients around the world.

Travel awards are available for students at all levels, as well as young investigators who have completed their terminal degree within the last five years, to present their research.
