Kiwis welcome PNIRSAsia-Pacific to Queenstown:

The Australasian Winter Conference on Brain Research has accepted a proposal from the PNIRSAsia-Pacific committee to present a symposium at their annual meeting in Queenstown from August 31 to September 4, 2019. This is the leading neuroscience meeting in New Zealand. Associate Professor Sarah Spencer organized the symposium proposal that features speakers from four countries. It is entitled, “PsychoNeuroImmunology Across the Lifespan.” Feature speakers include Deb Hodgson (Newcastle, Australia), Sarah Spencer (Melbourne, Australia), Suzi Hong (San Diego, USA), Cai Song (Zhanjiang City, China) and Atsuyoshi Shimada (Tokyo, Japan). The AWCBR, held as part of Queenstown Research Week, is New Zealand's annual international neuroscience conference. The meeting highlights a multidisciplinary approach to contemporary neuroscience, with participants from around the world, including Australia, Europe, Japan, New Zealand and North America. There is a range of presentations, from Nobel Laureates to early career researchers. The conference encourages interaction between a wide range of academic and clinical brain research disciplines including anatomy, biochemistry, kinesiology, neural modelling, neurology, pharmacology, physiology, and psychology, being sure to leave ample free time to fit in some Queenstown skiing.
