Dear Colleagues,

It’s our great pleasure to invite you to the 8th annual meeting Istanbul MS Days 2023 that will be held between 16th and 18th October 2023 in Ilıca, Cesme, Izmir, TURKIYE.

A significant MS event globally as described by most of its attendants the “Istanbul MS Days” had its debut on November 2013. Bringing together world known MS opinion leaders as its faculty and with its interactive structure discussing the most fore front topics in MS “Istanbul MS Days” now became a traditional MS event of the year.

This annual think-tank event is a great opportunity to network and share new and exciting research in a friendly environment. We believe that the chosen topic every year allows us to focus on some updated concepts in MS and related disorders through presentations from the most prominent international experts, many times with new and unpublished data followed by interactive discussions in a friendly environment.

The topic of this year is “The New Frontiers in MS”.

The meeting will start on Monday morning with the official opening and introductory lectures on the past, current, and future of MS. The presentations and discussions will cover in length the recent and expected developments in the immunology, pathology, and genetics of MS as well as in the fields of imaging and treatment. There will be separate sessions on pediatric MS and as usual the special session on Non-MS inflammatory central nervous system diseases.

“Istanbul MS Days” is now an independent scientific organization and will continue to be as such. The industry’s contribution is absolutely unrestricted. The official body organizing this meeting is The Neurological Research Support Society and it’s endorsed by The Turkish Multiple Sclerosis Society.

The meeting also provides an opportunity for you to present your work in neuroscience/MS as oral and poster presentations. The abstract submission deadline is September 4th, 2023. Necessary information regarding registration and abstract submission will be find at our website which is
