Injury to the brain and/or the spinal cord results in long-lasting cognitive, sensory and motor deficits in
patients. Traditionally it was believed that these impairments are solely caused by the initial local brain/
spinal cord damage. However, an increasing body of evidence now indicates that in addition to the acute
local changes also distant areas of the central nervous system (remote brain injury) connected to the
primarily injured area are also critically involved in this process. The longterm change is sustained by
chronic neuroinflammation which contributes to neurodegeneration. The present conference is associated
to the annual and kickoff meeting of 2 consortium funded by European community via the Eranet program:
CNSaflame and TRAINS. It will benefit of Dr Obenaus visit from UC Irvine CA. The program will be diffused in
France to attract the colleagues interested by the question in Bordeaux and to facilitate the networking in a
future plan to submit an European consortium grant.

A Satellite Meeting and a workshop will be organized on Monday July 11th on the Mont-Saint-Aignan Campus of Rouen University.
The satellite meeting will be on ‘Neuropeptide from Bench to Bedside: How to fight brain pathologies with neuropeptides’. Recent progress showing how neuropeptides can be instrumental to treat the brain will be presented and discussed through the following 2 mini-symposia: 1/ Common aspects of neuroprotection by neuropeptides and 2/ Translational approach for brain treatment with neuropeptides. World experts including Prs George Reiser (Germany), Illana Gozes (Israel), Turgay Dalkara (Turkey) and Tomoya Nakamachi (Japan) will present their most inspiring research. We would like to invite you to submit an abstract of your work for oral presentation (20 min) or poster communication. Participation is free but registration mandatory.
