“What do international organizations contribute to society?”
by Nancy Carfrae, Union of International Associations (UIA)

"Getting the best young minds"

Univ.-Prof. Dr. med. Frauke Zipp, Conference Chair, 12th International Congress of Neuroimmunology (ISNI)

Both of these systems are extremely complex, so unravelling their interactions is not easy. However, the potential rewards are great, as research in this area is leading to a deeper understanding of diseases such as multiple sclerosis, and providing leads for the development of new therapies.
