Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to invite you to attend the 1st International Conference on Neuroprotection by Drugs, Nutraceuticals and Physical Activity, which will be held in Rimini Campus Branch of University of Bologna on June 6-7, 2019. This conference represents a novel opportunity for interdisciplinary scientific interactions between academics, researchers and clinicians in the area of Neuroprotection, in Health and Diseases. In particular, this conference will focus on potential mechanisms of Neuroprotection at the cellular, biochemical, and molecular level mediated by Drugs, Nutraceuticals and Physical Activity.

The conference location, Rimini, is a dynamic, welcoming city, located on the Adriatic Sea. It is one of the most famous seaside resorts in Europe, thanks to its 15-kilometre-long (9 mi) sandy beach, over 1,000 hotels, and thousands of bars, restaurants and discos.
