BSN stream

The British Society for Neuroendocrinology is a scientific society that exists to promote research and learning into the interplay between the endocrine and nervous systems that control so many important body processes.

The ultimate aim of this research is to provide therapies for the many neuroendocrine diseases and disorders that may develop throughout the life, course, and to develop methods to beneficially regulate normal neuroendocrine function in man and animals.The BSN stream within the BNA2019 Festival of Neuroscience consists of the following sessions:
