The “Brain in Flux – MSCA NeuroTrans Joint Satellite Meeting”, hosted in the city of Gaia, close to the historic center of Porto, Portugal, will attract world leaders in the field of membrane transporters in brain and beyond. Many of these transporters are associated with human pathologies. We expect up to 150 expert scientists to attend this meeting, which will focus on hot topics in neurotransmitter transporter research.

Based on our previous meetings, we expect attendees to come from all corners of the globe, including Europe, North America, Australia, and Japan. They will cover the scientific fields of molecular and cellular biology, pharmacology, physiology, biochemistry, structural biology, electrophysiology, and behavior.

This platform offers an excellent opportunity to interact with thought leaders in the field, gather new knowledge, showcase your products, and develop networks. Membrane transporters are becoming increasingly important as possible drug targets because they are recognized as key players in drug distribution. The field has recently gained a tremendous boost through AlphaFold, which provides structural models for all transporters. This knowledge is now being leveraged to take research to new levels and to move basic science towards clinical applications.

The scientific program will be rich and stimulating with 4 keynote lectures, and 25 talks, including short talks by young investigators. Two poster sessions will allow plenty of time for interactions and lively discussions.

The various sponsorship packages are designed to suit your needs for maximum impact. Sponsorship will boost your visibility among leading researchers and could for example include:

  • Web presence
  • Recognition in pre- and post-congress publications and mailings
  • Recognition at the congress
  • Trade displays 
  • Sponsorship of plenary talks or entire sessions
  • Scientific talk

We cordially invite you to participate in this event that promises scientific excellence and provides outstanding business opportunities.
