Barcelona – Pittsburgh
Welcome to the XII Biennial Conference Barcelona – Pittsburgh!
You are joining a conference that has become a reference in the field of dementia. This year, on June 2022, BCNPIT will emerge again as a valuable forum where professionals from all over the globe connect and share their work and prospects about dementia.
This is a high-quality conference that brings together panellists of recognized international scientific prestige and creates and interactive space related to neuroscience which ultimate objective is to benefit the people affected and their families.
The most complete academic event of the year. 3 days of networking & sharing knowledge with speakers and attendees in an exclusive venue in Barcelona. Full access to the recorded lectures during the next month of the conference. For those who want to fully immerse themselves in the latest advances in dementia.
Don’t miss any of the speakers, materials, presentations and much more. Enjoy the conference wherever you are. Full access during the next month of the conference.
UNIQUE EVENT: THE FUTURE OF RESEARCH
An online exclusive one-hour event about genome research in the field of dementia: facts, figures and what the future holds.
