Folks,

You are cordially invited to attend 2010 MJNE Annual Conference and Dinner.

The theme of this year’s conference is “Brain – New Discoveries and
Business Opportunities”.  It will be held at the MIT Faculty Club (50
Memorial Drive, Bldg. E52, 6th Floor, Cambridge, MA 02139), on
Saturday September 25th, 2010 from 1:00pm to 9:00pm.

At this year’s conference, our keynote speaker, Dr. Li-Huei Tsai of
Picower Institute of Learning and Memory at MIT will be presenting her
finding on a single protein which appears to exhibit dual functions
for boosting synaptic growth and triggering neuronal loss. Such an
insight can be the molecular basis for a novel treatment of memory
impairment.  Professor Eric Wong of Harvard Medical School will be
discussing a novel neuro-imaging technology which is applicable for
effective monitoring of brain tumors. Dr. Feng Zhang from Harvard
University will be presenting a newly developed method which uses
light to selectively activate brain cells and is a powerful tool to
study functions of different areas of the brain. Dr. Iris Chen from
Mass General Hospital will be discussing using fMRI to study
Parkinson's disease, and impacts of acupuncture on brains of human and
experimental animals.  Dr. Gilmore O'Neill of Biogen Idec, Inc. will
be sharing his excitement about new drug development for Multiple
Sclerosis (MS) treatment.

Please come join us to meet our distinguished speakers and network
with audience professionals for an informative afternoon. While the
admission is free, seats are limited. You are encouraged to register
online early via http://mjne.org or though

I look forward to seeing you at the conference.


Sincerely,
