ICN 2014 Rio de Janeiro

The XVIIIth International Congress of Neuropathology was held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, in September 14-18. It was hosted for the first time in Latin America, organized by Brazilian and Argentinian neuropathologists, with the contribution of a highly qualified international scientific committee, which worked hard to produce a very successful scientific program, including many distinguished speakers, that was complemented by a lively and friendly atmosphere in the setting of a wonderful landscape with very enjoyable social events (see programme).

The scientific program covered a full range of interest, promoting the exchange of expertise between the various areas of neuropathology and other fields of neuroscience, including neurologists, neurosurgeons, neuro-oncologists, neuroradiologists, geneticists, basic neuroscientists and others, who contribute with information to aid in the diagnosis and treatment of patients.
