Grants for participation at “The first brain aquaporin meeting” in Oslo

Grants for participation at “The first brain aquaporin meeting” in OsloCenter for Molecular Biology and Neuroscience, University of Oslo and ScanBalt Academy invite young scientists from the ScanBalt Region to apply for grants to participate at “The first brain aquaporin meeting” which is held in Oslo June 9-10, 2008. The grants will cover travel and hotel expenses for 5-10 young scientists.

The research on aquaporins has expanded enormously over the last few years – sufficiently so to justify a meeting dedicated to aquaporins in the brain. Apart from providing an update of the field, the event “The first brain aquaporin meeting: Physiological and pathophysiological roles of aquaporins in brain” in Oslo will seek to couple the recent advances in our understanding of water transport at the molecular and cellular level, to the physiological data on water handling at the organ level and to diseases that are characterized by perturbations of water distribution or transport.

Applications should be send to ScanBalt Academy c/o Kaare R. Norum, Department of Nutrition,  University of Oslo P.O Box 1046, 0316 Oslo Norway(email: krnorum@gmail.com) before April 1st 2008.
