On October 2018, the III International Scientific Conference "Modern Problems of Neurobiology" was held at the Yaroslavl State Medical University, dedicated to the memory of Honored Scientist of the Russian Federation, Professor Valentin V. Shilkin.
This is the third conference and it continues the cycle of scientific events held in 2014 and 2016 at this university, highlighting topical issues of neuroscience. This conference was dedicated to the memory of the Honored Scientist of the Russian Federation, Professor Valentin V. Shilkin. This is not accidentally as he stood at the origins of this event and also always took an active part in it.
Previous conferences had a wide response: leading representatives of academic staff and research teams from Moscow, St. Petersburg, Kazan, Voronezh, Arkhangelsk, Yaroslavl and many other cities took part in it. The number of participants and guests of the conference is constantly increasing.
This year more than 60 scientists, teachers and students from leading research teams not only from Russia, but also from foreign countries - Ukraine, Belarus and the United States - took part in the scientific event. The opening ceremony of the conference began with the welcoming words of the Rector of the University, Professor Alexei V. Pavlov, as well as the chairman of the organizing committee of the conference, the head of the department of normal physiology with biophysics, professor Peter M. Maslyukov. For three days there was an active discussion of the most acute and topical issues of modern neuroscience. The high importance of such scientific events is confirmed by the emergence of new scientific and practical ties that contribute to the effective and fruitful cooperation of the scientific schools of medical universities with leading teams of scientific laboratories and research institutes.
I express my deep gratitude to the organizers of the conference for the invitation to participate in the conference with a scientific report, for the highly professional organization, warm, friendly atmosphere. Participation in the conference was pleasant and useful.
