Uniting Brain Function Professionals and Experts From Across the Globe

The XXIVth International Symposium on Cerebral Blood Flow, Metabolism, & Function, and the IXth International Conference on Quantification of Brain Function with PET, is a constantly evolving, biennial, joint-symposium that unites a diverse group of investigators for the exchange of top scientific information in multiple, related areas of research.

Brain’09 & BrainPET’09, set for Chicago, June 29 -July 3, 2009, is a crucial meeting for brain professionals and leading experts devoted to expanding their knowledge and advancing education, research, and treatments in fields such as cerebrovascular regulation, brain imaging, ischemia/stroke, neurotrauma, and brain protection.

The Society for Cerebral Blood Flow & Metabolism (ISCBFM) welcomes all professionals in the field to register, submit their abstracts, and help shape the future of brain research
Abstracts will be published online as a supplement to the Journal of Cerebral Blood Flow & Metabolism published by the Nature Publishing Group (NPG).
