Cholinergic system meets neuroinflammation

- from bench to bedside and back


Dear ladies and gentlemen,


it is our great pleasure to cordially invite you to our scientific meeting "Cholinergic system meets neuroinflammation" in Heidelberg.


In the early 19th century, Otto Loewi discovered the "Vagusstoff", released from stimulated fibres of the cardiac Nervus vagus and latter named acetylcholin. This discovery laid the foundation for our molecular understanding of the autonomous nervous system. Since these days, both neuronal as well as non-neuronal sources of acetylcholine, and its importance for a plethora of biological functions have been discovered. The proven involvement in health and disease underlines the importance of acetylcholine and the cholinergic system, resembling an evolutionarily conserved master regulator of homeostasis and potential drug target.


The thematical framework of our meeting aims to cover both worlds - bench and bedside, focusing on neuroinflammation. Therefore, we are happy to welcome the world's most renown basic scientists in the field of cholinergic research together with outstanding physician scientist acting on the front line of patient treatment as speakers in our meeting.


Take this unique chance to join our symposium, share and discuss with (inter-)national speakers and scientists. We are looking forward to welcome you to Heidelberg!


Prof. Dr. Markus A. Weigand

Prof. Dr. Konstanze Plaschke
