Dear friends

              The first Symposium on Enteric Neural Plasticity (SENP) occurred in September 2011 in Maringá – PR, Brazil. It reunited researchers from Brazil and countries from Europe, North America and Oceania, working in strategic areas of the Enteric Nervous System. This event formed an important partnership to exchange researchers, graduates and undergraduates from Brazil to universities or foreign institutes from the North American, Australian and European continents.  We are honored to invite you to participate in the second International Symposium on Enteric Neural Plasticity and the first Symposium on Gastroenterology which will take place from November 9th to 11th, 2016 in Maringa-PR-Brazil.
              The main aim of the meeting is to promote discussions on the role of neuroplasticity both in basic enteric neuroscience. In addition, we intend to facilitate interactions among researchers of the Brazilian Neurogastroenterology Society by organizing discussion sessions moderated through expert panels of both Brazilian experts and experts from abroad. It is planned to encourage new and important partnerships, as well as strengthen those ones which have already been established, and also promote the creation of novel models of international cooperation.
              The event is primarily targetting academics active within biomedial domains and professionals with special interest to neurogastroenterological issues.

              For a better understanding of the lectures will be available simultaneous translation.            

              Join us in Maringá, PR-Brazil for SENP2016.
