Sept.28th-30th,2017 Buenos Aires, Argentina







Dear Collegues,

     Ten years ago Prof. Huang Hongyun founded the International Association of Neurorestoratology. It born and continue been an association of multicultural clinicians and basis researchers, none biased for any industry affiliation, but yes, associated to several and very relevant international academic centers (Highly Prestigious Chinese Universities, England Highly Qualify Centers, European and North America Centers and other countries universities).

During these ten years of life we have growth as a scientific community inspiring one to each other on our daily work. Most of the time our original approaches were poorly understood for most of the official associations. The warm and open reception of our ideas was the main fuel to perseverate and develop our original approaches. Ten years later we have a growing magazine and a couple of guiding documents that are profusely consulted around the world.

     This year we have the opportunity to meet again, this time in Argentina,  I could perceive through the email correspondence that we have exchange, this meeting could mark a new milestone on the developing of our IANR, but also for the Neurorestoratology International Field, because we will present the New Clinical Cell Therapy Guidelines for Neurorestoration (IANR/CANR 2017).

Therefore, it is an honor for me to announce the organization of the 10th IANR Annual Conference. It is scheduled to be held in Buenos Aires from September 28 to September 30 at the city of Buenos Aires, Argentina.

As addition of this International Meeting we are programming two different satellite courses, one on “GMP Elaboration of Cells Culture to be used in Cell Therapy” and second “Intravascular Implants to be used in Neurorestoratology”. We also have planned a social activity for Sunday, October 1 with a tour around Buenos Aires city and a tango show included.

Please be so kind to reserve this dates to join us at this important scientific event.
