About the Conference


In the last decade, Prof Michael Heneka has founded a conference series at his former workplace at the University Bonn, called Venusberg Meeting, which has established itself as one of the major international events on Neuroinflammation welcoming regularly over 350 international experts. With taking on the directorship of the Luxembourg Centre for Systems Biomedicine (LCSB) at the University of Luxembourg (UniLu) in 2022, this renowned conference series now moves to Luxembourg.

The 7th edition of this international meeting on Neuroinflammation will take place from 11th – 13th May 2023 at the Campus Belval, Luxembourg. Through a comprehensive scientific programme with a broad basic and clinical focus, the conference will address the entire spectrum from basic aspects of Neuroinflammation and Neurodegeneration to state-of-the-art and emerging treatments. During the 2023 edition, a special emphasis will be put on the many roles of immune mechanisms in neurological diseases and their potential as diagnostic or therapeutic targets. Scientific breakthroughs in the interdisciplinary field of Neuroinflammation will cover eight main fields:

  1. Genetics
  2. Microbiome
  3. Microglia
  4. Inflammation
  5. Emerging targets
  6. Cancer
  7. Modelling of Disease
  8. Clinical aspects

Speakers from diverse areas of Neuroinflammation will present their most recent research insights in order to stimulate vivid discussions and idea findings for future collaborations. The conference offers new grounds for scientific exchange, joint strategies and collaborative actions within the Neuroinflammation community on an international level. The three days conference will host 32 internationally renowned experts and offers 15 Blitz talk slots for young researchers.
