On behalf of the International Neurotoxin Association (INA) and its Conference Organizing Committee, I am pleased to announce the next conference – TOXINS 2015: Basic Science and Clinical Aspects of Botulinum and Other Neurotoxins. The conference will be held January 14-17, 2015 in Lisbon, Portugal.
TOXINS 2012 was a resounding success – with 547 attendees representing 35 countries. We are proud to announce that the TOXINS 2012 keynote speaker, James E. Rothman, MD, PhD, received the 2013 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine (jointly with Randy W. Schekman, PhD, and Thomas C. Südhof, MD),”for their discoveries of machinery regulating vesicle traffic, a major transport system in our cells”, from the Nobel Assembly at Karolinska Institutet.
The abstracts from the Conference were published in the issue of The Botulinum Journal. 2013; 2(3/4)
The TOXINS 2015 scientific program will feature cutting edge plenary sessions, basic science and clinical didactic tracks, poster sessions, and a number of practical workshops. The program will be of interest to basic scientists and clinicians in the fields of neurology, physical medicine and rehabilitation, ophthalmology, otolaryngology, urology, dermatology, gastroenterology, and pain management.
I look forward to sharing more details of the conference with you in the near future, and hope you will join us in Lisbon for TOXINS 2015.
