Welcome to ESM – Coimbra 2022

It is with great pleasure that we invite you to participate in the 8th European Synapse Meeting, which will be held in Coimbra on the 20th and 21st of October 2022.

The aim of this meeting is to bring together junior and senior neuroscientists working on synapses and to provide a forum for new directions and ideas in studying synapses in the healthy and diseased brain. The meeting welcomes participation from all scientists within and outside the EU and will combine research lectures by leading neuroscientists, selected talks and poster presentations.

The program will provide multiple opportunities for interaction, during the poster sessions, lunch time and coffee breaks, providing an opportunity for disseminating the latest advances and for cross-disciplinary discussion and collaboration. The meeting will be held at the São Francisco Convention Center in Coimbra, a unique setting that combines history and the best of the Portuguese architecture, and which will certainly contribute to inspire your future research and foster partnerships to address novel and challenging questions.

We look forward to welcoming you in Coimbra for an exciting meeting!
