30 September 2021 Brain Sciences | Advances in Neuropsychiatric Systemic Lupus Erythematosus


Neuropsychiatric (NP) systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is one of the most challenging organ involvements in this condition. Unfortunately, none of the NP manifestations that occur in SLE have features that are specific for SLE; therefore, determining the correct diagnosis is a challenging and critical step in order to decide the adequate treatment of individual patients, and in the performance of research studies.

Currently, newer and more advanced neuroimaging technologies are helping in both diagnosis and follow up. Additionally, advances in our knowledge of the main pathogenetic pathways (ischemic and neuroinflammatory mechanisms) allows for a better selection of therapies (antithrombotic or anti-inflammatory/immunomodulatory drugs). Furthermore, a multidisciplinary expert team approach is, without doubt, the best strategy for managing NPSLE.

However, there are still many unmet needs in the management of NPSLE (absence of diagnostic biomarkers, lack of novel therapies, paucity of clinical trials, etc.), which will be the scope of the present webinar of Brain Sciences.

The following experts will be present and talk:

  • Prof. Dr. Ricard Cervera, Department of Autoimmune Diseases, Hospital Clinic, Barcelona, Spain
  • Professor Marcello Govoni, Department of Rheumatology, University of Ferrara, Italy
  • Dr. Giovanni Sanna, Louise Coote Lupus Unit, Guy's and St Thomas' NHS Foundation Trust, London, United Kingdom
  • Dr. Chaim Putterman, Albert Einstein College of Medicine, Jack and Pearl Resnick Campus, USA

When? 30 September 2021 at 10:00am CEST | 4:00am EDT | 4:00pm CST Asia

28 October 2021 Cells Webinar | Cellular and Molecular Mechanisms Underlying the Pathogenesis of Hepatic Fibrosis


The hallmark of hepatic fibrosis is the formation and deposition of excess fibrous connective tissue, which destroys the physiological architecture of the liver. This process is highly dynamic and involves cross-talk between parenchymal cells (hepatocytes), non-parenchymal cells (Kupffer cells, hepatic stellate cells, sinusoidal endothelial cells), and infiltrating immune cells. Left untreated, advanced liver fibrosis may progress to severe forms of the disease, such as liver cirrhosis, liver failure and hepatocellular carcinoma.

In the past, significant progress in many aspects of hepatic fibrosis research has been made. In particular, central mediators (cytokines, chemokines, lipotoxic substances) have been identified that play critical roles in orchestrating the process of fibrogenesis and influx of immune cells to sites of tissue injury. The translation of these findings to novel therapies is currently ongoing. However, effective treatments are still missing and key questions in the pathogenesis of hepatic fibrosis and its consequences are unanswered.

In this Webinar, eminent experts from Germany, Spain and France discuss novel basic and clinical aspects of hepatic fibrogenesis and potential molecular targets for therapeutic intervention.

The following experts will be present and talk:

  • Prof. Dr. Ralf Weiskirchen, Institute of Molecular Pathobiochemistry, Experimental Gene Therapy and Clinical Chemistry (IFMPEGKC), RWTH University Hospital Aachen, Germany
  • Prof. Dr. Claus Hellerbrand, Institute of Biochemistry, Friedrich-Alexander University, Erlangen-Nürnberg, Germany
  • Prof. Dr. Matías A. Ávila, Hepatology Program, Center for Applied Medical Research (CIMA), University of Navarra, Spain
  • Prof. Dr. Thomas F. Baumert, Institut National de la Santé et de la Recherche Médicale, U1110, Institut de Recherche sur les Maladies Virales et Hépatiques (IVH), France
