We would like to announce the ‘Restoration of Sensory and Motor Function Symposium 2016’ to be held from May 26th to 27th 2016 in Göttingen, Germany. The idea of this small size (we expect approximately 100 attendees) and highly interactive meeting is to exchange experience among researchers aiming to restore sensory and motor function. Speakers will cover molecular therapies such as virus-mediated regeneration of sensory cells and optogenetic restoration of vision and hearing as well as sensory and motor prosthetics. The conference is organized by the Physics2Medicine consortium of the Göttingen cluster "Physics to Medicine (P2M)" and supported by several DFG-funded collaborative research activities and the Göttingen Graduate School for Neurosciences, Biophysics and Molecular Biology "GGNB". We encourage participation of young scientists who might contribute by short talks (selected from applications) or posters.
