UK & Ireland Early Career Blood-Brain Barrier Symposium

The blood-brain barrier (BBB) is a cellular barrier that comprises specialised brain endothelial cells that form the walls of microcapillaries and separates the blood from the brain interstitial fluid. The BBB can regulate the passage of endogenous substances and xenobiotics into the brain. This maintains brain homeostasis and neuronal signalling. The barrier is not static and can be considered a biologically active interface with regulatory actions involving transport, secretory and enzymatic roles. 

ABOUT
the
BBB

The UK & Ireland Early Career Blood-Brain Barrier Symposium has been running since 2011 and is held on a yearly basis. This provides an opportunity for early career researchers to present their research on the barriers of the CNS in the form of a platform talk or posters and to encourage networking between CNS barriers researchers.
