The International Society for Cerebral Blood Flow and Metabolism promotes research centered on furthering the understanding of neurological conditions that result from ischemia and related injuries. This previous meeting (Brain 11) focused on state-of-the-art research, which shed light on the pathophysiology of these conditions as they pertained to the cerebral vasculature - including the BBB - and angiogenesis, immune mechanisms, regeneration and repair following such insults. The meeting also covered a variety of potential therapeutic strategies ranging from cell-based therapy, induced tolerance and the targeting of specific immune or cell death pathways. In addition, there was a focus on how the peripheral circulation contributes to such types of brain injury.
