BAT-SHEVA SYMPOSIUM ON BIOCHEMICAL DEVELOPMENT OF NERVOUS TISSUE IN CULTURE
AUGUST 26-31, 1979
Dear Dr. Nirenberg,
We are organizing a Satellite Symposium to the VII International Meeting of the International Society for Neurochemistry which is being held in Jerusalem, Israel, September 2-7, 1979. The Symposium will be held at the Weizmann Institute of Science, Rehovot, Israel, from August 26 to August 31, 1979.
The first three days (August 26-28) of the symposium will consist of a workshop on methodology of nerve and muscle cultivation, to be attended by 20 students. The remaining three days (August 29-31) will be devoted to lectures by invited speakers and poster sessions. The symposium will focus on (a) neuronal development and synapse formation in culture (plasticity and cell recognition, neurotransmitter mechanisms, synaptogenesis, epigenetic factors during development; (b) neuronal-glial interactions (primary glial cultures, hybrids, neural tumor cell lines; (c) Myelin formation and demyelination in vitro (biochemistry of myelin formation, pathology and immunobiology of demyelination). Because of your significant contributions, we would feel honored to have you participate as an invited speaker to deliver a lecture on the subject of biochemical development of nervous tissue in culture.
The local organizing committee will cover expenses for the period of the meeting. Although we are at this moment unable to promise any additional financial assistance, we are exploring the possibility of allocating a part of our budget for partial reimbursement of travel expenses.
The proceedings of the symposium will be published as one volume of a series entitled "Advances in Developmental Neuroscience", edited by Ezio Giacobini and Antonia Vernadakis, and published by S. Karger A.G., Basel.
We would be honored if you would accept our invitation and would be thankful if you could let us have your response by the end of October, 1978.
Yours sincerely,
Dr. Ezio Giacobini
Dr. Abraham Shahar
Dr. Antonia Vernadakis
