XII European Meeting on Glial Cells in Health and Disease
Dear Glia Community,
The XII European Meeting on Glial Cell Function in Health and Disease invites participation from neuroglia researchers from all over the world to Bilbao (Spain), see http://bilbao2015.gliameeting.eu
The Glial Meeting series has become a tradition since the first gathering in 1994 at the University of Heildelberg where more than 600 participants got together. Subsequent Glial Meetings have been held throughout Europe every second year. After the outstanding success of the Glia Meeting 2013 in Berlin, the conference returns to Spain and it will be hosted in Bilbao.
Bilbao is the economical capital of the Basque Country, a city that has experienced a tremendous modernization in recent years. The Glia Meeting 2015 will be held at the Euskalduna Conference Centre (www.euskalduna.net), one of the flagships of the new Bilbao. Designed as a vessel permanently under construction that stands in a dock on the site of the former Euskalduna Shipyard, the Conference Centre received national and international awards for combining style and functionality to host many different kinds of corporate, financial, institutional, social and cultural events. The Euskalduna Centre is conveniently located at the heart of Bilbao and within a walking distance to major hotels, the Guggenheim Museum and the Old Quartier. The participants will meet the young growing community of neuroscientists with an interest in glial cells.
Bilbao is a lively city that combines tradition with modernity. Famous for its tapa bars and restaurants, the city has become a cultural reference in Southern Europe.
We are looking forward to welcoming you to Bilbao in July 2015.
Carlos Matute, Chair of the Local Organizing Committee

A naturally occurring substance called epidermal growth factor appears to reverse a type of brain damage that's common in very premature infants.
Repeated doses of EGF led to the complete repair of brain injuries in baby mice that didn't get enough oxygen after birth, researchers reported in the journal Nature. "It was really amazing," says Vittorio Gallo, of Children's National Health System in Washington, D.C. "These mice looked identical to the mice that were not exposed to the injury."
