Rita Levi-Montalcini. The frontiers of research ten years after her death.

A conference in Rome, on December 1st, organized by the Academy and the EBRI Foundation in collaboration with the Senator for Life Prof. Elena Cattaneo. Through the memory of Rita Levi-Montalcini, the meeting aims to emphasize the importance for society of supporting basic research on the brain. The neurodegenerative diseases that afflict the community, and which still do not have adequate treatment, will be solved only by adequately supporting fundamental research. Neuroscience presents us with cognitive challenges that represent a frontier for humanity. Italy has the skills to be at the forefront of this challenge as long as researchers are actively supported by the country’s research system.

The event will take place in the Zuccari room of Palazzo Giustiniani, Senate of the Republic.
