Neuroinflammation 2023: Neurolupus and beyond

Royal College of Physicians, 11 Queen Street, EDINBURGH EH2 1JQ

Neuroinflammation 2023 is a two day meeting for clinicians, clinician-scientists and scientists working in the field of immunological disease, with a focus on rare and neglected neuroinflammatory disorders.

This year there will be a particular focus on neurological disease in lupus and systemic immune disorders. There will be a mixture of clinical and research talks, panel discussions and educational cases. The meeting will be particularly suited to trainees in neurology and internal medicine specialties, as well as scientists in this field.

The event is taking place in the historic city of Edinburgh, capital of Scotland and a UNESCO World Heritage site. The venue is the magnificent Royal College of Physicians set in the centre of Edinburgh.
