Professors Atsuyoshi Shimada and Keith W. Kelley submitted a successful symposium application on behalf of the PNIRSAsia-Pacific symposium committee to Neuro2019. This will be 42nd Annual Meeting of the Japan Neuroscience Society and the 62nd Annual Meeting of the Japanese Society for Neurochemistry. The meeting will be held from July 25-28 in in Niigata, Japan (www.neuro2019.jnss.org/en/information.html). The symposium title is, “Neuroinflammation and the Blood Brain Interface: New findings in brain pathology.” Drs. Shimada and Kelley will chair the symposium, and speakers will be

Antoine Louveau (Department of Neuroscience, Lerner Research Institute, Cleveland Clinic, William A. Banks (Division of Gerontology & Geriatric Medicine, Department of Internal Medicine, University of Washington) Michael Dragunow?Centre for Brain Research, The University of Auckland) and Atsuyoshi Shimada (Kyorin University Faculty of Health Sciences). It is noteworthy that another PNI symposium will be held just prior to the PNIRSAsia-Pacific symposium. It is entitled, “Neuro-Immune Crosstalk: Its role in the pathogenesis and perspectives for novel therapies” and will feature two former PNIRS speakers, Professors Michal Schwartz (Weizmann Institute of Science)and Asya Rolls (Technion.

7th ANNUAL MIND-BODY INTERFACE SYMPOSIUM
TAICHUNG, TAIWAN (NOVEMBER 3-4, 2017)
 
On November 3 and 4, 2017, 170 registrants participated in the 7th Annual Mind-Body Interface Symposium held in Taichung, Taiwan. The meeting was very well organized, thanks to Kuan-Pin Su, M.D., Ph.D., Cherry Hui-Chih Chang, PhD and graduate students. Check out the excellent scientific program at  http://www.tsnpr.org.tw/programme.php where PNIRS was represented. Insightful presentations, interactions and discussions about Western and Traditional Chinese Medicine occurred throughout the meeting. Tentative plans are being developed for a full PNIRSAsia Pacific symposium at the 2018 MBI meeting that will likely be held from October 25-27, 2018 in Taichung. Great science is happening in Taiwan.
