Welcome to Brain 2021
On behalf of the President, Local Organizing Committee and Program Committee of the International Society for Cerebral Blood Flow and Metabolism (ISCBFM), we wish you a warm welcome to BRAIN & BRAIN PET 2021, the 30th International Symposium on Cerebral Blood Flow, Metabolism and Function in conjunction with the 15th International Conference on Quantification of Brain Function with PET to be held in Glasgow UK from June 26-29, 2021.
Following the tradition of previous biannual meetings, BRAIN & BRAIN PET 2021 will cover numerous aspects within the area of neuroscience research, particularly those related to brain function and metabolism, cerebral blood flow, the function of the neurovascular unit and the blood-brain barrier, brain imaging, brain repair, and cerebrovascular pathology. Our goal is to present the state-of-the art and novel discoveries of these fields in the conference.
Glasgow is undoubtedly one of Europe’s most dynamic cultural capitals: steeped in culture, rich in history, but above all, alive with an excitement you can sense as you walk through its elegant Victorian streets, squares, parks and gardens. It is an incredibly friendly, cosmopolitan city with beautiful architecture, and numerous cultural attractions; combined with some of the world’s most breath-taking scenery right on its doorstep. Within an hour you can experience ancient castles, tranquil lochs, outstanding golf courses or visit the capital city of Edinburgh. There is sailing, hillwalking or mountaineering and scenery like you may never have seen before. You can see why Glasgow was described as the world’s “friendliest” and “most affordable” city and one of the “top 10 Best Cities in the world to visit in 2019” by Time Out Magazine. Glasgow will provide the delegates and their families with a wealth of opportunities for discoveries and adventure, at the conference and beyond.
A stimulating program combined with a wonderful location, will hopefully make this conference an exciting and memorable event. We very much look forward to your participation in BRAIN & BRAIN PET 2021 and to welcoming you to Glasgow, Scotland.
