9th European Synapse Meeting

The ESM was established to strengthen the bonds within the European synapse community. It was first held in Bordeaux in 2007 and successfully continued at different European locations. The 9th ESM will be hosted by Campus Buch, home to the Leibniz-Forschungs-institut für Molekulare Pharmakologie (FMP) and the Max Delbrück Center (MDC).
