The 11th International Conference of the Society of Neuroscientists of Africa (SONA) was held in Rabat, Morocco from June 7-12, 2013. Neuroscientists from Africa and around the world gathered to discuss the latest advances in Neuroscience. The program filled with lectures, symposia, posters, and oral sessions was sponsored by the International Brain Research Organization (IBRO) and the Society for Neuroscience (SfN).
Dr. Jose Maldonado, Head of Operations for MBF Bioscience Latin America and Africa, attended the conference. “This year’s SONA meeting in Morocco was a great opportunity to introduce MBF Bioscience Inc. to the neuroscience community in Africa. Quantification of anatomical regions, as well as cell populations, was a common theme among the posters. It was a dynamic meeting and I look forward to attending again in the future,” said Dr. Maldonado. Attendees who stopped by the MBF Bioscience booth were particularly interested in Stereo investigator, MBF’s system for stereology that gives accurate, unbiased estimates of the number, length, area, and volume of cells or biological structures in tissue specimens.
Thank you to everyone who attended the conference and visited us at our booth.
