5th International Congress
of Ukrainian Society for Neuroscience

June 6-10, 2011, Kyiv, Ukraine


Ukrainian Society for Neuroscience has a pleasure of inviting you to participate in the 5th International Congress Ukrainian Society for Neuroscience in Memory of Platon Kostyuk which will be held in Kiev, 6 - 10 June 2011. Scientific programme of this meeting, organized by the Society every 3 years, will include plenary lectures, symposia and poster sessions. The meeting is intended to provide a forum for neuroscientists working on molecular, structural and functional aspects of the nervous system in both animals and humans. Since the first Congress in 1998, this meeting attracted more than 300 participants each time.
The 5th International Congress will be held in the capital of Ukraine, Kiev, beautiful city located on Dnipro River. The host of the congress and its venue will be Bogomoletz Institute of Physiology, which is the main Neuroscience institution in Ukraine. Bogomoletz Institute of Physiology is located in a beautiful part of the city on the high bank of Dnipro River, close to the heart of the city, Independence Square. Kiev, as a main cultural centre of Ukraine, offers all the modern amenities of a popular tourist city, with historical sights, golden-headed cathedrals, monuments, museums, theatres, and music, from classic repertoire to jazz jamborees and folk festivals. We believe that the scientific programme combined with this attractive location will stimulate scientific discussions, informal interactions and will provide a good opportunity to build fruitful collaborations.
We look forward to welcoming you in Kiev!

Chairman of the Organizing Committee, President of the Ukrainian Society of Neuroscience Oleg Krishtal
