20th Annual World Congress of SBMT
The 20th Annual World Congress of SBMT will bring physicians, scientists, policymakers, funding agencies, and industry to further the advances and applications in brain and spinal cord mapping and image-guided therapies (operative and non-operative). A trade exhibition within the framework of the Annual World Congress of SBMT 2023 will be held at the Convention Center in Los Angeles, California, from Thursday, February 16th, to Sunday, February 19th, 2023.
We encourage you to come and visit the annual conference, which will host a world-class program across the four days, an exhibition hall, poster displays, and plenty of networking events.
The conference aims to create a critical mass by introducing synergy amongst interdisciplinary researchers to understand the brain function and nervous system further. It will serve as a platform to develop interactions between stakeholders with extensive collaborations at national and international levels.
The conference provides the opportunity to be at the forefront of brain sciences, therapeutics in general, and neural stem cell interventions. It provides a robust platform for industry and biotech companies to interact with academia in frontiers of science in this field for translational initiatives involving diverse patient interest groups.
The official language of this convention is English.
