  • 1. National Neuroscience Society of Romania: 2003 – 2004 activities report The National Neuroscience Society of Romania organized an International Workshop in Neuroscience together with the First International Conference of Neuroscience in Bucharest, September 23-27, 2003. The Workshop entitled Ischemia/Hypoxia in the Brain: Experimental Methods and Basic Mechanisms was sponsored by The Physiological Society and was intended primarily for young scientists from Central and Eastern Europe countries. The Workshop programme consisted in lectures, poster sessions and practical demonstrations that included methods for inducing ischaemia in vivo and in vitro, assessment of neuronal damage, patch clamp techniques, calcium measuring, immunohistochemistry, immunoblotting and more. The practical demonstrations took place in laboratories from the Faculty of Medicine, “Carol Davila” University of Medicine and Pharmacy, and from the Faculty of Biology, University of Bucharest. The First International Conference of the National Neuroscience Society of Romania was supported by International Brain Research Organization (IBRO) and Wellcome Trust. Travel grants for the young scientists from Central and Eastern Europe were provided by IBRO CEERC. The Workshop and Conference lectures were held at “Carol Davila” University of Medicine and Pharmacy in Bucharest. Speakers were invited from UK, USA, Canada, France, Germany, Sweden, Poland, Denmark, Belgium and Romania. The general topic of the Conference continued the theme set by the Workshop, integrating it in a wider Neuroscience perspective and covering both the basic science and clinical aspects of current Neuroscience research. The young scientists (most attending both events) had the opportunity to present their work, to discuss their ideas and to establish connections with neuroscientists from different countries. The poster presentations were evaluated by a scientific jury and prizes were awarded to the best three of them. The ‘Gheorghe Marinescu’ Prize was awarded for the first time by the National Neuroscience Society of Romania to a young scientist, in recognition of the research activity in the field of Neuroscience. The National Neuroscience Society of Romania organized and supported several successful events during Brain Awareness Week (BAW) 2004. During this week students and young researchers from “Carol Davila” University of Medicine and Pharmacy participated in a five day workshop Experimental Neurosciences: Asking the Question, Looking for Answers, Making a Coherent Story, Presenting the Findings and in a neuroscience lecture, Signal Processing in the Nervous System. Professor Leon Zagrean, the President of the National Neuroscience Society of Romania, gave public interviews regarding BAW 2004 in Romania and talked about Neuroscience Research and Education. One of the constant activities of our Society is to encourage and support young scientists to join the Neuroscience research field and to attend Neuroscience meetings. The First Symposium of the National Neuroscience Society of Romania is planned to take place in Bucharest, on October 8-10, 2004. A one day Workshop entitled Experimental Electrophysiology will be held in conjunction with this Symposium. Both events are intended to promote Neuroscience research activities in Romania.
