Manganese Health Effects on Neurodevelopment and Neurodegenerative Diseases

September 25-28, 2016

New York City

The Second International Conference on the neurotoxicity and prevention of adverse manganese health effects will be held September 25-28, 2016 at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York City. This is the 28th meeting in the International Neurotoxicology Conference series.

The overall objective of this conference is to bring together experts from academia, governmental organizations, non-governmental organizations, industry, and labor organizations from around the world. The conference will yield international state-of-the-science discussion of what is known, identify information gaps, and help define future directions for research to advance our fundamental knowledge of the causes, mechanisms, diagnosis, related new technologies, treatment and prevention of Manganese (Mn)-induced or exacerbated diseases and disorders in children,  adults, and the elderly.
