Dear Colleagues:
You are cordially invited to register for the 13th Biennial ISN Satellite Meeting on Myelin Biology, being held at the Paul Ricard Island Resort located on the beautiful Island of Embiez on the French Riviera.

This satellite meeting of the ISN/ESN joint meeting will focus on recent developments in the field of CNS and PNS myelin biology. The satellite will be held immediately following the ISN/ESN joint meeting in Paris will include 4 days of talks, with 2 plenary lectures, 9 symposia sessions that includes a young investigator session, and a poster session. The satellite will incorporate a combination of oral and poster sessions with time set aside for informal discussions.

Based on recent advances in the myelin field, symposium topics will include:
    Genesis of myelin forming cells
    Mechanisms of myelin forming cell differentiation
    Molecular and cellular dynamics during myelination
        and remyelination
    •Myelin dynamics and maintenance
    •Myelin and axonal protection/Energy metabolism/axo-glial
    •Astrocyte control of myelination and remyelination
