NICIS - Neurosciences in Intensive Care International Symposium 2017
NICIS will be held on June the 8th-9th 2017 at the Institut Pasteur in Paris. The 2017 edition of NICIS is titled “Critical Illness: Ageing, Frailty and Resilience”.
NICIS 2017 builds on the success of the previous editions, which were devoted to “Neuro-inflammation in Critical illness: From brain signaling to brain insult” (2016), “Neuroscience of repair, regeneration and recovery from critical illness” (2015), and “Neurobiology of stress” (2014).
The ageing of the population and the sharp increase in age-related illnesses represent huge challenges, as well as opportunities, for the medical community and health industry. This demographic shift is having a major repercussion in critical care medicine, posing an array of scientific, clinical and ethical problems which urgently need to be addressed. In addition to a rapidly expanding body of basic research centered on the biology of ageing, recent work has highlighted the concepts of frailty and resilience :
- What is the meaning of these concepts in the clinical setting?
- What is their biological basis?
- Do we have efficient biomarkers of aging, frailty and resilience to support predictive modeling and clinical trial design?
NICIS 2017 speakers include thought leaders in cellular and molecular biology, biomarker discovery and validation, neurophysiology, neuroimaging and brain mapping, and advanced clinical trial design. The conference is designed for an interdisciplinary audience of clinicians and investigators working in neuroscience and critical care medicine. This will be a unique opportunity to have an interactive and lively discussion between multiple content-experts with contrasting perspectives.
