2013 Conference to be held on “beating” the Blood Brain Barrier


December 20, 2012

A workshop and conference will be held on February of 2013 to discuss types of ways to penetrate safely through the blood brain barrier. The Future of medicine, especially nano-bot type of cures and enhancements to the brain requires us to understand more thoroughly about the BBB. The conference is to be held at Lisbon, Portugal (School of Medicine, Institute of Molecular Medicine, University of Lisbon).

“The blood–brain barrier (BBB) is a separation of circulating blood from the brain extracellular fluid (BECF) in the central nervous system (CNS). It occurs along all capillaries and consists of tight junctions around the capillaries that do not exist in normal circulation. Endothelial cells restrict the diffusion of microscopic objects (e.g., bacteria) and large or hydrophilic molecules into the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), while allowing the diffusion of small hydrophobic molecules (O2, CO2, hormones). Cells of the barrier actively transport metabolic products such as glucose across the barrier with specific proteins. This barrier also includes a thick basement membrane and astrocytic endfeet.” -Wikipedia
