Event Type:  Meeting (This is an NIH Science event)
Title:  Infectious Disease in the CNS and Therapeutic Strategies to Cross the Blood-Brain Barrier
Description:  Infections of the human brain can be caused by various agents - viruses, bacteria, fungi, and, on occasion, protozoa or parasites. A major impediment to development of effective therapeutics to treat the resultant neurological diseases is delivery of the drugs at sufficient doses into the brain, the site of action, due to the presence of the blood-brain barrier (BBB). Understanding the impact of infectious diseases on the physiological and pathophysiological function of the BBB will help advance knowledge and aid in accelerating the translational research and development of therapeutics targeting infections in the brain.
